To be honest syd Grayson doesn't know his strongest side he's only been with us a week so for me anyway these are about assessing what he does have more than getting players up to fitness and any tactics involved.

Post  cyprussyd on 2017-07-12, 1:22 pm

It’s matchday three in Sunderland’s pre-season and they are about the reach the midway stage of their Scotland trip.
Simon Grayson’s side head to Livingston this evening looking to once again ramp up their preparations another notch, after fitness-fuelled matches at Bury and Hibernian in the last five days.
‘Plenty to work on’
Grayson pulled no punches in his post-match interview with safc.com on Sunday, admitting straight away there is plenty to work on despite being pleased with certain aspects.
While Friday’s trip back from Bury took until the early hours of Saturday morning, Grayson’s side quickly turned their attentions to a six-day spell north of the border with Hibernian swiftly following the next day.
But with an opportunity to rest and recuperate after Easter Road, that has presented Grayson with a chance to hammer home his blueprint as he slowly looks to give his players more minutes, rather than just 45.
John O’Shea, Didier Ndong, Elliot Embleton and Jeremain Lens completed 45 minutes despite only returning to training last Wednesday. Grayson will now be keen to get Tyias Browning, Joel Asoro and Bryan Oviedo, when available, some minutes in the tank. 
‘Livingston have that winning feeling’
Livingston, like Hibernian, enjoyed a promotion winning campaign last term. The Lions topped the Ladbrokes Scottish League One table, 19 points clear of Alloa Athletic in second. Losing just seven of their 36 league matches, David Hopkin’s side won 26 of them on route to the title. Livingston ended the season with nine straight wins and 11 victories in their final 11 games. And Hopkins already been working hard on strengthening his squad, signing Scott Robinson, Ross Brown, Josh Peters and Dylan Mackin. However, the Livingston boss lost Liam Buchanan, who was named League One Player of the Year, to Raith Rovers. The 32-year-old enjoyed a fine goalscoring spree and netted 22 goals in all competitions.
Ticket and travel
Adult tickets for the Black Cats’ trip to the Livingston tonight are price at just £15, with over-65s £10 and under-16s £5.
Meanwhile, tickets for the Lads’ visit to St Johnstone on Saturday 15 July (KO 2pm) are priced at £15 for adult and £8 for over-65s and U19s. Children under 13 (accompanied) can get a ticket free of charge, but must be accompanied by an adult.

How to keep up to date
Unlike last pre-season, safc.com will no longer be offering a free streaming service for those wishing to tune in and watch the matches.
Fans can, however, keep up-to-date with all the action through our live audio service with commentators Nick Barnes and Stuart Vose. 
There will be a minute-by-minute analysis of the action on safc.com and various updates on the club’s Twitter, Instagram, Snapchat and Facebook.
Ha’way the Lads!

A crowd of just under 1,200 watched Wahbi Khazri give Sunderland the lead on 20 minutes with a drilled shot into the right-hand corner of the Livingston goal.

Joel Asoro notched after picking up on a goalkeeping error on 76 minutes and Jeremain Lens whacked in from 25-yards on 90 minutes.

[/size]




Line-up


Vito Mannone was in the stands as Mika Domingues took the goalkeeping jersey from the start with Max Strjek on the bench. John O’Shea donned the captain’s armband in an initial back four alongside Billy Jones, Papy Djilobodji and Brendan Galloway.

Donald Love played wide-right with Wahbi Khazri on the the left flank. Jack Rodwell featured in the centre of midfield ahead of Didier Ndong and Darron Gibson operating as the holding pair. Lynden Gooch was shoved upfront as Sunderland began the game with no recognised striker.


Mika, Jones, Galloway, Gibson, Djilobodi, O’Shea, Ndong, Rodwell, Gooch, Khazri, Love



Subs: Stryjek, Beadling, Matthews, Robson E, Maja, Asoro, Kone, Lens, Cattermole, Honeyman, Ledger


One change at half-time saw Jeremain Lens come on for Billy Jones before Simon Grayson made a raft of substitutions shortly into the second with Sunderland then lining up as follows:


Strykek, Ledger, Beadling, Kone, Matthews, Cattermole, Embleton, Honeyman, Lens, Asoro, Maja







Ratings


Mika - nothing of note. Caught what he had to and saved what was needed. 6/10
Jones - quietly went about his job well and gave support to Love on the right hand side. 6/10
O'Shea - his experience against Scottish Championship centre forwards shone through. Defended well and had no fuss. 7/10

Djilobodji - he horribly misplaced headers and passes in the first 10 mins, but grew into the game and improved slightly. Still looks likely to drop a clanger at any moment though. 5/10
Galloway - doesn't look like a full back on his two showings so far. Composed on the ball but doesn't look comfortable attacking. 5/10
Love - got forward well and put some good balls into the box. Played a great pass to Rodwell just before half time which should have resulted in a goal. 7/10
Rodwell - full of industry, but still tends to be directionless when on the ball. Got forward well but lacks impetus and threat. Missed a great chance. 5/10
Gibson - was almost unnoticeable, but he just kept things simple and ticking over. Needs the tenacity of Catts next to him. 6/10
Ndong - looks a yard short at the moment and a little jaded. Showed glimmers of his usual self with effort and industry and generally kept himself busy. 6/10

Khazri - again head and shoulders, knees and twinkle toes above everyone else on the pitch. Wahbi will be sensational if we can keep hold of him but his performances are also displaying to suitors what’s on offer. 9/10
Gooch - started off looking out of place, but led the line quite well. Neat touches and linked well with Khazri. 7/10
Lens - time to eat a few words. Looked more motivated than his previous effort at Hibs and scored an absolute beauty right at the death. 8/10
Strjyek - didn't have much to do, but when called upon he handled well. 6/10
Ledger - played in an unfamiliar role at right-back and actually played very well. Impressed. 7/10
Kone - nothing much of note. 6/10
Beadling - same as Kone. 6/10
Matthews - the defence wasn't pushed in this game and much like Kone and Beadling it was an easy night for him. 6/10

Honeyman - decent possession, not everything came off but always showed for the ball. 7/10
Embleton - better than he was on Sunday, neat and tidy. 6/10
Cattermole - his usual self, battled and sprayed the ball about nicely. 6/10
Asoro - got on the ball a lot, but you have to worry about his size. He's very slight and get shoved off the ball far too easily. Got a goal. 6/10
Maja - the opposite to Asoro, he’s tough in possession. Starting to look like a youngster who could easily be in and around the first team next season. 7/10
