SUNDERLAND Under-21s’ clash with Aston Villa today has been postponed due to a waterlogged pitch.

The Black Cats were due to face their opening home game of the season at the Academy of Light this afternoon as Kevin Ball’s men continued their search for a first victory of the campaign.

But the clash fell victim to the weather during a pitch inspection this morning after the referee judged both goalmouthes were waterlogged.

A new date for the rearranged game will be announced in due course.
