Academy XI win in style

Loughborough, showing plenty of fitness and spirit, pulled one back when Daniel Nti was left unmarked to head a free-kick from the left past Joel Pereira.

Wilson flashed a drive off target following an eye-catching overlap by Donald Love but the students continued to enjoy a spell of their own pressure, much to the delight of the appreciative crowd, with skipper Liam Grimshaw blocking a goalbound effort by Michael Emmerson. Louis Rowley hit the side-netting from a difficult angle and Barmby went close to a deserved goal late on but there was no further addition to the visitors' scoring with Sam Cook instead heading in from a corner in stoppage time to further reduce the deficit at the death. 

United: Gollini (J.Pereira 46); Love, Grimshaw, McGinty, James; Weir (Rowley 61), Pearson (McNair 61), Hendrie, A.Pereira, Daehli (Wilson 61); Barmby. Subs not used: Rudge.
