VIDEO: Manchester City beat Manchester United in the reserves

Manchester City 1 – Manchester United 0 (Barclays Premier Reserve League, November 3, 2009) United’s reserves slipped to a second league defeat of the season as Manchester City edged the derby, thanks to a solitary goal at the Regional Athletics Arena. City striker Alex Nimely struck the only goal of the game after 20 minutes, latching onto a long ball from Greg Cunnigham and clinically lobbing a finish over stranded United goalkeeper Ron-Robert Zieler. United’s cause was hindered by the dismissal of Scott Wootton just before the hour-mark – three minutes after Woootton was brought on off teh bench, although Febian Brandy did come close to snatching a point for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side, only to see his effort cleared off the line.
