Manchester United 4 Barnet 1

Manchester United continue their recent custom of using the Carling Cup to develop younger squad players, tonight against Barnet, a team currently enjoying their first season of Football League.

Obviously I wasn't able to see the match but the worst moment was obviously the totally unnecessary sending off of Barnet's goalkeeper in the second minute whilst the best was the confident performance of a weird mixture of rusty first teamers and a handful of kids making their United debuts.

The bare stats of the match are:-

Man Utd Howard, Bardsley, Brown, Pique, Eckersley, Martin (Gibson 75), Miller, Jones, Richardson, Ebanks-Blake, Rossi.

Subs Not Used: Park, Smith, Silvestre, Steele.

Booked: Miller, Jones, Eckersley.

Goals: Miller 4, Richardson 19, Rossi 51, Ebanks-Blake 89.

Subs Not Used: Charles, Graham.

Sent Off: Flitney (2).

Booked: Yakubu.
