Lee Johnson used the game to hand opportunities to more of his first-team squad, with Corry Evans handed a full debut in the centre of midfield and Oliver Younger starting the game at right-back.

Callum Doyle was handed another start in the fixture, but Will Grigg, Bailey Wright, Luke O’Nien and Alex Pritchard all missed out.

The Black Cats were in control throughout the first half and deservedly took the lead when Dan Neil swept home Aiden McGeady’s low cross.
