Under-23s set for Old Trafford outing

Neil Wood's side are currently in second place in the Division 2 table, following a fine run of form this term, and the last fixture at the senior ground was an entertaining 2-2 draw with leaders West Ham United.

It will be interesting to see which players lead coach Wood has at his disposal for a game against a team currently lying at the foot of the table, with the Black Cats' sole point so far coming in the opening fixture at Stoke City.

A number of United's youngsters have been away on international duty, with Ethan Laird, James Garner, Mason Greenwood (all England) and Dillon Hoogewerf (Netherlands) on the scoresheet for their countries.
