Gus Poyet promised to make changes from the midweek epic against Manchester United, and he's delivered with near wholesale changes from that game. Lee Cattermole the only one to start both games, and having went off early.
Debuts are handed to new goalkeeper Oscar Ustari and defender Santiago Vergini, while Emanuele Giaccherini makes a start too.
Duncan Watmore starts from the bench as Charis Mavrias makes a welcome return to the first-team fold.
Sunderland (4-3-3): Oscar Ustari, Ondrej Celustka, Valentin Roberge, Modibo Diakite, Santiago Vergini, Lee Cattermole, El Hadji Ba, Seb Larsson, Charis Mavrias, Emanuele Giaccherini, Jozy Altidore.
Substitutes: Jordan Pickford, John O'Shea, Jack Colback, Craig Gardner, Ki Sung-Yeung, Duncan Watmore, Fabio Borini.
Meanwhile Andy Thorn is without striker Joe Lolley having sold him to Huddersfield a few weeks ago, and outside of that I don't really know much about Kidderminster, so here's who's playing for them and you can chip in with comments if you've heard of any of them.
