Sunderland Under-18s claimed a thrilling penalty shoot-out win at Ipswich tonight to march into the fourth round of the FA Youth Cup.

The Black Cats needed a cracking drive from Lynden Gooch to haul them level in normal time, and 30 minutes of extra time failed to split the sides at Portman Road.

Sunderland keeper Max Stryjek produced two saves in the shoot-out, denying Byron Lawrence and Joe Robinson, and saw successful attempts by Martin Smith, Ethan Robson, Rees Greenwood and Tom Robson steer the Wearsiders through 4-2 on penalties.
