Sunderland 0 Preston 0: Highlights as Tony Mowbray's side are held to goalless draw at Stadium of Light

Sunderland were held to a goalless draw with Preston North End at the Stadium of Light.

The Black Cats dominated possession for large spells and played some neat football between both boxes, yet they couldn’t find a breakthrough.

New signings Amad Diallo, Jewison Bennette and Abdoullah Ba were all brought on in the second half.
