Manchester United Under-23s and Under-18s will both be broadcast live on MUTV on Saturday.

Our Under-18s start the day off when Neil Ryan's young Reds face Derby County in a midday (12:00 GMT) kick-off at the Aon Training Complex, with MUTV's coverage starting at 11:45 GMT. 

The Under-23s follow closely as Neil Wood's team make the journey down south to face Southampton. Kick-off in that one is scheduled for 14:00 GMT.

Watch all the Academy derby goals, including the bizarre ones scored by each side just before half-time...

While player development obviously matters more at Academy level, the Reds are proudly top of the Under-18 Premier League North table, having won 12 of 14 games this campaign, including a 4-0 win over the Rams in October. In our last four home games, our boys have won all four and scored four goals in each triumph.

The free-flowing attacks are often finished off by Charlie McNeill who has been prolific this season. The striker netted all of United’s goals as we overcame crosstown rivals Manchester City last time out.

Few would bet against another entertaining match as Ryan's Reds take on seventh-placed Derby.

Under the leadership of Neil Wood, the Under-23s had won three in a row prior to our last match, when Everton ran out 3-1 winners at The Pure Stadium in Southport.

Joe Hugill has been prolific this season, scoring 10 times in his 17 appearances for the Reds. In recent weeks, Shola Shoretire and Amad have made their first-team debuts following impressive performances for the Under-23s.

The Reds are fifth in the table while our hosts on the south coast are struggling at the bottom of the table, sitting in 12th place.
