Manchester United’s Reserves will be looking to progress to the semi-finals of the Lancashire Senior Cup when they take on their Blackburn Rovers this evening.
The match will be played at the Leigh Sports Village, which is actually the current home for both teams.
The winners of the tie will take on Wigan Athletic away from home for a place in the final. If today’s game ends level after 90 minutes, it will go straight to a penalty shootout.
Tonight’s match at the Leigh Sports Village is vital for two first-team regulars. Both Jonny Evans and Ander Herrera have been included in the United squad as part of their rehabilitation programme.
While Northern Ireland international defender Evans has been suffering with ankle and foot injuries, Spanish midfielder Herrera has been left out of the first-team starting line-ups in the last few games after suffering a rib fracture.
Here is how United will line up against Blackburn tonight.
