The senior side that beat Port Vale down in the Potteries has been changed completely, as both youth players and unfavoured first teamers alike are given the opportunity to make a statement of their own.
Here’s the rundown of our drastically altered side:
Sunderland: Robbin Ruiter, Jack Bainbridge, Alim Ozturk, Glenn Loovens, Bryan Oviedo, Max Power, Jake Hackett, Luke O’Nien, Jack Diamond, Jordan Hunter, Josh Maja
Subs: Anthony Patterson, Brandon Taylor, Lee Connelly, Ryan Leonard, Daniel Neil, Williams Kokolo, Jacob Young
How will this unique assortment of youth and experience fare? It’s certainly an interesting question to ponder - ha’way the lads!
