Manchester United youngster was back on the scoresheet for the under-23s.
It is crazy to consider that it is now more than three years since James Wilson made his Manchester United debut.
Wilson scored a brace against Hull City for the Ryan Giggs managed side, but his career has been a frustrating one since.
He was sent on loan to Derby County last season and his campaign was wiped out early on as he suffered an serious knee injury.
The Red Devils have not given up on Wilson, even though the high standard of forward play in their first team makes his task tougher than ever.
Last night was a positive moment at least for Wilson, who scored for the under-23s in an entertaining clash with Chelsea which finished 2-2.
He rose highest to head home from a corner, with his goal giving United a two goal lead which they would later squander.
After his injury and rocked confidence after seeing Marcus Rashford overtake him in the United pecking order, Wilson's career is about a slow rebuild.
Every goal at under-23 level should be cherished for the 21-year-old, who will hope to accumulate enough playing time and goals over the course of the campaign to justify another belated shot at the first team.
While it is an uphill battle, United fans remain hopeful about the striker...
