Welbeck goal sees Wolves crash out

23 September 2009 09:18
Danny Welbeck's second-half goal proved enough to send 10-man Manchester United into the Carling Cup fourth round with a 1-0 win over Wolves.

Even with a man extra following Fabio's dismissal for deliberately bringing down Michael Kightly after half an hour, Wolves were able to make little impact at Old Trafford.

Welbeck finished in fine style after running on to Michael Owen's precise return pass, ensuring the holders' progress to the last 16 was smooth after a largely one-sided contest in which the loss of a player had barely any impact.

Welbeck departed to a standing ovation from United's lowest crowd for four years - which still exceeded 50,000 - for another teenager, Norwegian Joshua King, of whom very big things are expected.

With a bit more composure and a little bit of luck, King might have marked his debut with a goal too, although ultimately one proved to be enough.
