'Great to see Academy lads starting' - Sunderland fans react as Jack Ross makes ELEVEN changes at Morecambe
Jack Ross has made 11 changes to his Sunderland side to face Morecambe in the Checkatrade Trophy group game - and fans have been quick to have their say.
Group leaders Sunderland are well placed to qualify after a win over Carlisle United and a draw against Stoke City U21s, which was followed by a penalty shoot-out victory for an extra point.
The Black Cats top the group with five points.
