Tranmere vs Sunderland [19:00 GMT]

It is the Black Cats' fifth pre-season friendly of the summer following on from Saturday's comfortable victory at Harrogate Town.

Lee Johnson is expected to name a young side for the clash with the League Two side, with Bailey Wright tipped to make his return from injury at Prenton Park.

The Australian defender featured in the opening pre-season encounter with Spennymoor Town, but a groin complaint has ruled him out in recent weeks.

Will Grigg and Lynden Gooch are among the other senior figures who could be handed a start on Tuesday evening, while Aiden McGeady will play no part for the visitors.

Johnson is expected to treat Friday's fixture with Hull City as a dress rehearsal for Sunderland's opening League One fixture against Wigan Athletic on July 7.
