The young Welshman struck in the U21's victory over Newcastle United this week.
United coach Warren Joyce told MUTV: "Tom's unfortunate not to start the games," the coach explained. "He's been as patient as he can be because he's a bit of a snapper! But he can come on and change things and it's pleasing now that he's had a good run of training without any injuries.
"He suffered a lot of injuries last year but I'm sure he will build from that and have a really good second half of the season."
