FRAIZER Campbell and Connor Wickham lead the line in Sunderland’s opening pre-season game in South Korea’s Peace Cup today.

With Stephane Sessegnon and Ji Dong-won both absent from the tournament, Martin O’Neill handed Campbell and Wickham the chance to make an early impression during the pre-season campaign.

Elsewhere, David Meyler was included in the starting line-up while new signing Carlos Cuellar was left on the bench for clash with Korean outfit Seongnam.

Sunderland: Mignolet, Brown, Bramble, Turner, Colback, Meyler, Cattermole, Gardner, Richardson, Campbell, Wickham. Subs: Wilson, Pickford, Egan, Adams, Cuellar, Laing, Knott, Vaughan, Reed, Deacon, Noble, Lynch.
