Lee Johnson named an unchanged side coming into the game with Elliot Embleton once again named on the bench.

Frederik Alves, however, returned to the squad after injury had kept the West Ham loanee out of Lee Johnson’s plans.

The Black Cats took the lead through Ross Stewart and then doubled it through Nathan Broadhead with Lynden Gooch assisting both players as Sunderland ended the first-half 2-0 up.

Embleton hasn’t stopped since he came on. Seems to be dying to make an impression and his pressing hard to win the ball back for his team.
