TWO goals from France Under-21 international Gabriel Obertan earned Manchester United’s second string victory at Newcastle yesterday.
Both strikes came in the second half of the rearranged Barclays Premier Reserve League clash, which was played at United’s Benton traning ground.
The second came just five minutes from time and was quickly followed by Michael Richardson’s consolation effort for Peter Beardsley’s side, which included Tim Krul, Steven Taylor, James Perch and Shefki Kuqi.
