SUMMARY: Sunderland 2-1 Hull City

Well, that was a poor game, in truth.

Sunderland had the better of the first half and went ahead through Ross Stewart after good work from Elliot Embleton.

Hull City came back into it in the second half, and deservedly levelled through Josh Magennis.

It looked like it would be a draw, but Will Grigg won it at the death, heading in from close range in the last minute.

Grant McCann won't be too happy about the result, but he'll be more worried about Magennis and Lewie Coyle who both went off with injuries - although neither looked too serious.

19:472 months ago

HALF TIME: Sunderland 1-0 Hull City

Good half from Sunderland who have done a number on Hull City so far. Ross Stewart scored the only goal of the game so far after Elliot Embleton played him in. Couple of moments where Sunderland have looked shaky at the back, but Grant McCann will be the unhappier of the two managers.

34' - Great defending from Emmanuel and City win a free kick with no advantage on.
19:332 months ago

Stay tuned - kick off is nearly upon us!
18:552 months ago

Exciting front three for City...

KLP, Longman and Magennis have the potential to be explosive tonight... let's see how it goes!
18:552 months ago

Stewart leading the line for Sunderland...

Dan Neil and Carl Winchester are both usually midfielders - but they're left and right back respectively tonight.

Corry Evans will play in midfield against his former club...

18:492 months ago

Ten minutes to go!

Not long now. Kick off is at 7pm!

Stay with me for updates as soon as they happen!
18:292 months ago

Great opportunity for City youth...

On a personal level, it's great to see City's bench filled with youth prospects.

Harvey Cartwright did feature in goal for the first team at the start of last season, and Festus Arthur played well in the Scunthorpe game.

Matty Jacob provided the assist for Magennis against Mansfield, but Will Jarvis could be a big one tonight. He came on for the U23 squad on Tuesday to net twice in the 3-1 win against Pickering, and I think he's one to watch.

Snelgrove and Beckett make up the bench, who are both exciting players too.

A Reminder of the Sunderland team...

This is how Lee Johnson's side line up tonight...

 

18:212 months ago

Sunderland and Tigers fans - what do you make of that?

Sunderland's line up is affected by illness, but Hull City's line up seems strong. Strangely, Josh Emmanuel is at left back - which must mean Brandon Fleming will play in the friendly tomorrow, same as Tom Huddlestone who is still training with the Tigers.

Around 40 minutes to kick off!

18:162 months ago

Sunderland affected by illness...

So, Sunderland will line up with an unfamiliar XI due to illness. Corry Evans starts in midfield though, as well as the dangerous Elliot Embleton and Lynden Gooch in the more offensive midfield positions.

Will Grigg and Jack Diamond are on the bench, but no McGeady - who I hear has been nursing a knee problem.
18:092 months ago

So, Hull City fans - what do we think?

A few changes from Grant McCann tonight.

Ingram is in goal, with the back four consisting of Coyle, Greaves, Jones and Emmanuel - playing on the opposite side, interestingly.

Smallwood, Docherty and Cannon are in midfield, with Lewis-Potter, Longman and Magennis up front. Longman was particularly good against Scunthorpe at the weekend.

It's a young bench, but no Olly Green - which must mean he is going to feature against Manchester United U23's in the behind closed doors game tomorrow.

Previous meeting between Sunderland and Hull City

The last time these two sides met, it was back at the end of the League One season. Sunderland twice took the lead at the KCOM Stadium - now the MKM Stadium - with the Tigers clawing back each time through Josh Magennis. It was an end-to-end game that did little for either side's promotion credentials at the time, with Hull City eventually winning the league and Sunderland losing in the Play-off Semi Final against Lincoln City.
16:402 months ago

Predicted line-ups for Sunderland vs Hull City

Sunderland: Burge; Winchester, Flanagan, Doyle, Dyce; Evans, O'Nein; McGeady, Embleton, Gooch; Stewart.

 

Hull City: Ingram; Coyle, Jones, Greaves, Fleming; Smallwood, Docherty, Moncur; Lewis-Potter, Williams, Magennis.

Hull City looking for a positive result going into the start of the season

The Tigers played two friendlies last weekend on the same day with two different squads. They lost at home to Mansfield Town 1-2 - despite being the better team - and won away to Scunthorpe United 1-0. This will be a stern test for them against a side who will be desperate to get out of League One this season.

Sunderland looking to get a win over Hull for the first time in four attempts
