1 Name: 606 2020-09-05 14:51
Sunderland AFC vs Hull City

The Black Cats kick-off the campaign with a Carabao Cup first-round tie against recently relegated Hull City at the Stadium of Light.

Phil Parkinson's side have recorded three victories from three pre-season encounters, with their latest victory coming against EFL new boys Harrogate Town last weekend.

Saturday's encounter with the Tigers is the first of a cup double before the League One campaign gets under way with a home clash with Bristol Rovers next weekend.

Grant McCann's side travel to Wearside with five first-team players ruled out through injury, with Callum Elder and Leo da Silva Lopes both added to the absentee list this week.

In contrast, Parkinson will have an almost full-strength squad at his disposal, although new signing Arbenit Xhemajli is not eligible for selection.

Hull debuts

Hull boss Grant McCann gave debuts to three of his summer signings, Richie Smallwood, Josh Emmanuel, and Greg Docherty.

Former Sunderland skipper George Honeyman was in the Tigers’ starting line-up.

Team news

Phil Parkinson included two of his summer signings in his starting line-up, with ex-Bristol City defender Bailey Wright – who was on loan with the Wearsiders last season – at the heart of the back three, and former Millwall forward Aiden O’Brien making his debut playing on the left side of the three-man attack.

Will Grigg’s pre-season form saw him preferred to Charlie Wyke as the central striker. New signings Remi Matthews and Morgan Feeney were included on the bench, but latest arrival Arbenit Xhemajli did not arrive in time to feature today.

Teenage academy product Dan Neil, who made such an impact in pre-season, was also amongst the subs.

Cup draw details

The Carabao Cup round two and three draws will take place on Sunday, September 6, the EFL have confirmed.

The draws will be available to watch live on Sky Sports, hosted by David Garrido - who will be joined by ex-Liverpool and Sunderland defender Phil Babb.

Sunderland take on Hull City in their first-round clash at the Stadium of Light on Saturday.

The round two draw is unseeded, and the fixtures will remain regionalised - split into northern and southern sections.

The round three draw will then take place after, with each tie given a number in the order that they were called out in the draw before.

Sunderland XI: (4-4-2): Burge; Flanagan, Wright, Willis; Hume, Power, Scowen, O’Nien; Gooch, Maguire; Wyke.

Hull XI (4-3-3): George Long; Josh Emmanuel, Reece Burke, Jordy de Wijs, Brandon Fleming; Richie Smallwood, Greg Docherty, George Honeyman; Martin Samuelsen, Mallik Wilks, Tom Eaves

Are Sunderland one of the most laughed at clubs ever? Back to back relegations, they fielded a Pedophile, shitty owners, their rivalry with Newcastle, and now the documentary.

Don't support either but:

Marcus Maddison left Peterborough to join Hull on loan in January and rejected a new contract to push the move through. It turned out that Maddison was completely unsuitable at Championship level so he got dropped by Grant McCann and eventually left in the summer not wanting to extend his contract.

William Storey is the batshit insane owner of Rich Energy, who were sponsoring the Haas F1 team until it was discovered Rich Energy's logo was a rip-off of a bicycle company. He's apparently been in talks to take over as Sunderland owner.

Never realized how much more emphasis I place on the sound of the match compared to visually paying attention when watching a match. Audio is behind the action a solid 20-30 seconds and it took me 40 minutes to even notice.

Its basically a pre season match, Sunderland can't break the defence down because they are shit, Hull are shit. MLS will at least be quick

Wouldn't the Carabao cup be a pretty major trophy for a team of Sunderland's caliber? These are all knockout rounds, no?
54 Name: Anonymous 2020-09-05 15:42
Straight to penalties.

Sunderland's team is mainly their academy players due to international duty.
55 Name: Anonymous 2020-09-05 15:43

Meh. Most clubs field weaker teams and aren't too fussed. Then they might take it a bit more seriously if they got to the Quarters or something.

It's worth even less now they're playing for a place in the Europa Conference League.

I see the French scrapped their League Cup, the only other "secondary cup" to offer a European place.

I see. I remember a number of years ago while Liverpool were utterly shit they had won the league cup and I was pretty happy about it. Probably skewing my perception a bit.

Very nice football from Sunderland so far, but little clear chances. Also George Honeyman is as shit as when he left us, we can't defeat counters.
