The visitors enjoyed more possession in the second half and Rashford had the Newcastle defence back-pedalling and was unlucky not to be rewarded for his skill and determination. But the Reds were still finding it difficult to produce good scoring opportunities until Mitchell got his head to Sean Goss’ corner, only to be thwarted by Woodman’s finger-tip save.
That moment ultimately denied the Reds a fitting end to the game - despite a really good spell in the closing stages, Paul McGuinness' young players just couldn’t find a way through.
United: Henderson, Williams (Reid 88), Tuanzebe, McConnell, Borthwick-Jackson; Rashford (Barber 83), Harrop, Goss, Mitchell; Willock; Fletcher. Subs not used: J.Pereira, Rathbone.
