Manchester United loanee Nick Powell scores 11th goal of the season

DW Stadium - Wigan Athletic

Nick Powell was on target for Wigan in their entertaining draw with Yeovil.

Manchester United's most prolific loanee was on target again last night, scoring his 11th of the season.

Nick Powell was the star of the show for Wigan, as the Latics played out an entertaining 3-3 draw with Yeovil Town in the Championship.

The 19-year-old had missed a key stretch of six games last month, and his headed goal last month was his first since January.

With United's first team struggling, the promising performances of Powell have given a glimmer of hope at a brighter future.

The attacker now has six goals in 20 Championship starts; two FA Cup goals, and three in the Europa League, 11 in total.

Last night his second half goal had looked to have secured the points for Wigan, putting them 2-0 up, before former Manchester City striker Ishmael Miller led a fightback and the points were shared.

Powell was listed by whoscored.com as the best player on the pitch with an overall rating of 8.74 for his performance. He won four tackles, four aerial duels, and provided two key passes in addition to his goal.

United fans may hope he has an important part to play on the big stage still this season - by scoring in the FA Cup semi-final against Arsenal. Wouldn't that be ideal payback for Joel Campbell's goal for Olympiakos three weeks ago?
