Man United trio make reserves return

February 1, 2007

Wes Brown, Alan Smith and Mikael Silvestre completed a much-needed 90 minutes for Manchester United's second string against Liverpool.

Darren Fletcher was also involved, as was China international Dong Fangzhou, who made his reserve team debut after finally having his work permit granted.

However, in front of Sir Alex Ferguson. the big names were not enough to overcome a Liverpool side that included Bolo Zenden, Dong hitting the post late on as United were held to their first 0-0 draw of the season.
