Kader Mangane will make his first appearance for Sunderland in the under-21s’ game against Everton tonight.

The 6’6” defender, who joined Sunderland on loan from Al Hilal last month, is named as an overage player for the clash at Eppleton CW.

Coach Kevin Ball has named an otherwise young squad, including scholars Mikael Mandron, Joel Dixon, George Honeyman, Tom McNamee and Ross Holland.

Admission is free for season card holders or £3 for adults and £1 concessions. Kick-off is at 7pm.
