Young Black Cats face Spurs


Youngsters face tough trip to the capital.

Sunderland’s under-18 side will look to get back to winning ways this weekend when they travel to Tottenham Hotspur in the Barclays U18 Premier League.

The young Black Cats haven’t won in their last three games, though they’ll be buoyed by their performance in last weekend’s 1-1 draw with Aston Villa at the Academy of Light.

Spurs’ young side have been in fine form at the start of the 2013-14 campaign with nine wins from their opening ten games.

Sunderland’s leading scorer Lynden Gooch, who has five goals in 11 games, will need to be at his best to breach a Spurs defence that is the second meanest in the division with only Villa conceding less.

Kick-off is at 12pm and a full report will be on following the first team’s game with Hull City.
