A win at the weekend would see our youngsters climb to the top of the table which is currently occupied by Saturday’s opponents.
The Black Cats have picked up 19 points from eight games, whereas City sit in second place three points behind the league leaders.
Ben Wilkinson’s side came from behind to win 3-1 against Stoke City at the weekend.
Second half goals from Farid Alfa-Ruprecht, Justin Oboavwoduo and Joel Ndala wrapped up the points after Adam Watson had initially opened the scoring for the hosts.
Carlos Borges scored four goals in a 6-0 victory the last time we met Sunderland at the Academy of Light, Luca Barrington and Josh Adam also found the back of the net in that game.
