With Sunderland suffering a spate of injuries of late, the Under-23 side is likely to be be packed with youngsters although teams are allowed to play three over-age players.

Boss David Moyes has always given youth an opportunity when possible at his previous clubs and Tuesday night appears to be a prime time for him to do it, according to former player Tommy Miller.

He told the Echo: “A match like this will be good experience for the Sunderland kids. David Moyes is a manager who is not afraid to play young talent.

“Look at his time in particular at Everton, if he sees something in a player he’ll be brave and pick them. I think he’ll do that here.”
