The Black Cats’ Under-23s host League Two club Notts County at the Stadium of Light and just need to avoid defeat to make it through to the knockout stages (kick-off 7.30pm).

It is the club’s first involvement in the competition since the late 1980s.

Sunderland are one of the clubs to benefit from the inclusion of Premier U23 sides in a tournament previously limited to teams from Leagues One and Two, whose reluctance to welcome the big clubs has been sugared by prize money of £10,000 per win.
