YOUTH: United 1 - 2 Rochdale

Result from the Saturday morning youth game

7 March 2020

United were back in action on Saturday morning as they faced Rochdale at Creighton.

And it was Dale who bagged the points as they notched two goals in the closing five minutes to turn the game on its head and take the spoils from the day.

Youth boss Eric Kinder said: "I have no complaints about the result, we rode our luck and we were second best overall, if I'm going to be honest.

"We scored to go ahead through Jamie Armstrong in the second half, but Rochdale had missed a lot of chances by then.

"They kept pushing us and coming at us, but when you're a goal ahead with just a few minutes left to play you expect to take at least a point. However, credit to Rochdale, because they were the better side."

"From a development point of view it was a good exercise for us," he added. "We ended the game with five of our under-16s on the pitch, and they did well. That's really pleasing.

"They'll take a lot from the experience, so that's a big positive for us."
