Wolves 0-0 Utd: Two sides to replay at Old Trafford after Rashford misses chance
A draw that might feel like a victory. That is replay-permitting, though Manchester United finally left Wolves with a positive result at the fourth time of asking.
It ended goalless and United supporters railed against the apparent negativity from Nemanja Matic and beckoned them forward in added time. By full-time, it was pure positivity. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer sauntered over to those in the lower tier of the Steve Bull Stand and the sighs from the home crowd suggested a missed opportunity. United players gifted their shirts to fans.
A largely frustrating FA Cup game between Wolves and Manchester United finally came to life late on, but neither side could find a winner.
Manchester United’s FA Cup campaign started in underwhelming fashion as they drew 0-0 with Wolves in a dire third-round meeting at Molineux.
In a repeat of last season’s quarter-final – which finished 2-1 to Wolves – the encounter did not come alive until Marcus Rashford hit the crossbar moments after coming on in the second half.
Sergio Romero has been the busiest of the goalkeepers prior to Rashford’s chance, though United believed they should have had a penalty when Leander Dendoncker bundled into Brandon Williams.
Having been let off the hook when Rashford’s effort hit the woodwork, Wolves upped the pressure late on but, though Matt Doherty had a goal rightly disallowed and Raul Jimenez hit the woodwork, the tie will have to be settled in a replay at Old Trafford.
