Sunderland Under-23s face a do-or-die battle in their fight for Premier League 2 top-flight survival tonight.

Elliott Dickman’s lads must win at fourth-placed Swansea City to stand a chance of staying up.

They trail Derby by two points and have a much inferior goal difference going into their final match of the season.

Sunderland must therefore hope that Derby lose at third-top Leicester.

Bottom club Manchester United’s relegation has already been confirmed.
