Taking on Burton Albion may leave a sour taste in many Sunderland mouths after the Brewers were the ones to relegate them from the Championship in 2018 - with former Black Cats striker Darren Bent playing a part in their drop down to the third tier.

However, with Sunderland’s new-look youthful side, fans will be feeling a lot more positive about their trip to Staffordshire.

New signings Frederik Alves and Nathan Broadhead will be eligible to play tonight, with the latter preparing to face his former club after spending the 2019-20 season on loan with Nigel Clough’s side.

Burton Albion have also won both of their league fixtures so far, but can Sunderland grind out yet another 2-1 win? Or perhaps get their first clean sheet?
