'Gutted beyond words' - Sunderland and Rangers winger Jordan Jones reacts after missing Wembley Papa John's Trophy final
Sunderland winger Jordan Jones has reacted after missing out on the Papa John's Trophy final through injury.
Jones misses out with a hamstring injury.
He tweeted before kick-off: “Gutted beyond words to be missing this but here supporting the boys and can’t wait till we bring this trophy home. HAWAY the lads!!!!!”
Sunderland play Tranmere Rovers in the 3pm kick-off at Wembley in the final of the Papa John's Trophy final.
Charlie Wyke leads the Sunderland attack, Aiden McGeady starts with Tom Flanagan and Luke O’Nien the central defensive pairing.
Sunderland lost in the final of the competition to Portsmouth two years ago.
And here’s how Sunderland line-up at Wembley: Burge; Power, Flanagan, O’Nien, McFadzean; Leadbitter, Scowen, McGeady, Maguire; Gooch, Wyke
And on the bench: Matthews, McLaughlin, Kimpioka, Diamond, Neil, Stewart, Younger
So that’s four changes from the win at Portsmouth - as Flanagan, Leadbiter, Gooch and Maguire replace Jones, O’Brien, Sanderson and Winchester.
