Youngster Welbeck gets 10-man United off hook

<strong>MANCHESTER UTD (1) </strong>vs<strong> WOLVES (0)</strong><br /><br />MANCHESTER UNITED youngster Danny Welbeck gave boss Sir Alex Ferguson a timely reminder of his ability as his strike sent them into round four. The 18-year-old, in his first start of the season, played a neat one-two with Michael Owen before firing low past Marcus Hahnemann in the 67th minute to sneak 10-man United into the fourth round.<br /><br />The goal followed Fabio da Silva&rsquo;s deserved red card for felling Michael Kightly when the striker was through on goal after half an hour. <br /><br />Wolves surged forward late on but found the recalled Tomasz Kuszczak in fine form and despite being far from their best, United held on.<br />
