SUNDERLAND’S second string romped home against Scunthorpe tonight

Coach Keith Bertschin’s young side has had a torrid time of late, but showed character and quality at Eppleton CW.

Jordan Laidler (2) Matthew Fletcher, Craig Lynch and Billy Knott were the home side’s scorers on a blustery night in Hetton.

Scunthorpe gained a consolation through Jonathan Williams’ penalty, but they already trailed 3-0 at that stage.
