Is there any stopping Andy Welsh's Sunderland Under-21 side?

Sunderland maintain their lead at the top of the Under-21 Premier League with a 2-0 win at Norwich, with fit-again Tom Beadling marking his return to action with a goal.

Centre-half Beadling - who spent pre-season with the Sunderland first-team squad - was sidelined in September with a broken ankle and only returned to full training at the Academy of Light last week.

Beadling converted a spot-kick at the second time of asking after the referee had ordered his successful first effort to be retaken.

Sunderland quickly doubled their advantage in the 58th minute when Charis Mavrias lifted the ball over Norwich keeper Ben Killip, before heading it over the line.
