Jack Ross is able to welcome back two key players to his Sunderland side at Accrington Stanley.

Skipper George Honeyman returns to the starting line-up having missed the last two games through injury, while winger Chris Maguire is able to start after missing last weekend's draw at Walsall after pulling out of the warm-up.

Their return signals a double boost for Ross, who names a strong side to take on League One surprise package, Accrington.
