Who have Sunderland played so far this pre-season?

Sunderland played games against Gateshead and Blyth Spartans over the weekend.

Assistant head coach Canning said: "The boys have come in, they've been great and they have worked really hard, but you have to get game fitness as well.

"There's obviously more to the game and when you play with senior players they keep you right and you learn. It's great for the older boys as well to pass that experience on, so it benefits everyone.

"There has been a lot of running, but a lot of the hard work is done with the ball as well. They've had plenty of touches and the next progression now are the games, we've had two today and then we step it up and look forward to the season."
