Salford City host Manchester United U21s in a local derby at Peninsula Stadium on Wednesday. United's youngsters make the short journey to begin their EFL Trophy campaign against League Two Salford, who reached the final last season.

Salford City Form


Salford City reached the final of last year's EFL Trophy only to never play the decider against Portsmouth at Wembley due to the global pandemic bringing the season to a halt.

The Ammies defeated Newport on penalties in the semi-final in February and have played only four competitive games since. They lost Colchester before signing off the cancelled League Two season with wins over Macclesfield and Bradford.

Graham Alexander's side also needed a penalty shootout to overcome Rotherham in their Carabao Cup first round tie last weekend as they started the new season on a winning note.

Manchester United U21s Form


The young Red Devils won all three games in the EFL Trophy group stage last year, defeating Rotherham, Lincoln and Doncaster Rovers to progress as winners.

Manchester United U21s came unstuck in the first knockout round as they lost 3-2 to Tranmere Rovers. 

In the Professional U23 Development League, United's youngsters were promoted to Division 1 after being declared runners-up of Division 2 when the season was cancelled due to the pandemic.
