Result: Man United Under-23s unbeaten but fail to boost survival hopes against Everton

Manchester United Under-23s secure a goalless draw with Everton Under-23s as they bid to boost their survival hopes in Premier League 2.

Manchester United Under-23s failed to stretch away from relegation danger, but they escaped defeat by playing out a goalless draw with Everton Under-23s on Monday evening.

The young guns currently sit third from bottom in the Premier League 2 table, but are unbeaten in their last five games in all competitions.

The Red Devils started slowly as Everton knocked on the door early on by forcing Keiran O'Hara into making two quick saves inside the opening four minutes.

Bassala Sambou came close to putting the Toffees in front when he launched a thumping strike towards goal, but the striker ended up dragging his shot wide.

At the other end, Ethan Hamilton got on the end of a free kick that was lofted into the box and his attempt at goal was blocked for a corner, which came to nothing.

In the first half, United suffered an injury blow when Ro-Shaun Williams, who has struggled with numerous setbacks in his career, was replaced by Tyrell Warren.

Just before the break, James Wilson linked up with Joe Riley before taking a shot, but his effort went wide and the frustration in front of goal continued for the young Red Devils.

Tosin Kehinde was inches away from being awarded a penalty when he was pulled down just outside of the box, but the intent from the midfielder demonstrated United's improvement in the second half.

As the clocked ticked down, Callum Gribbin took a chance with a left-footed strike, which was kept out of the net by the Everton shot-stopper.

In the end, though, it was Everton, who sit inside the top four, piling on pressure in the closing stages of the contest.
