Although falling behind to an early goal, the Reds made the best of the many chances for both teams, to bring back all three points to Manchester. Phil Airey's goal might have been offside, but his strike stood and the home side went in to the lead. Dean Stott equalised eight minutes later after his blast deflected off a defender and either side could have added during an action-packed first half. Five minutes after the restart good work from Cedric Krou found Matthew Wolfenden on the wing and his cross was slammed home by goal ace Michael Norton. The Reds shaded the chances in the second half and deserved the victory.
