Youngsters head to Merseyside


Young Black Cats hoping to maintain winning run.

Sunderland’s under-18 side travel to Everton this afternoon looking to continue their fine run of form in the Barclays U18 Premier League.

The young Black Cats have lost just once in their last seven games and could move within one point of fourth place Liverpool if they pick up three points on Merseyside against the Toffees.

Saturday’s 2-1 win over Blackburn Rovers extended Sunderland’s winning run to three games – in which time they’ve scored ten goals.

The hosts have won three of their last four games and they would go top with a win at Finch Farm this afternoon.

Kick-off is at 1pm with a full report to follow on later today.
