Manchester United’s Under-23s turned on the style to win their final away game of the Premier League 2 season 6-2 against Derby County, with Nigerian born Shola Shoretire scoring double.

Neil Wood’s side moved up to fifth place in the Division One table, following a goal blitz at the Loughborough University Stadium on Monday evening that started in the opening minute.

With six minutes of the first half to play, Shoretire tapped home United’s third goal after Rams keeper George Sykes-Kenworthy stopped but failed to hold Anthony Elanga’s shot from a rapid breakway, which also involved Omari Forson.

Elanga aided team-mate Shoretire to also make his goal haul a double on the night, picking him out with an intelligent pass into the danger area.
