Preview: Sunderland  v  Darlington 1883

Published: 18 July, 2014
by Stuart Vose


Pre-season campaign kicks off at Heritage Park.
Saturday sees Sunderland kick off their programme of pre-season friendlies with a trip to Heritage Park to take on Darlington 1883 (KO 3pm).
The Quakers, bossed by former Sunderland man Martin Gray, play in the Evo-Stik First Division North having been re-formed following the liquidation of the old Darlington FC.
Sunderland’s allocation of tickets for the game are sold out, with fans keen to get a glimpse of new signings Costel Pantilimon, Jordi Gomez and Billy Jones.

The team have been training for two weeks and now we are starting to play games, as a player that is what you want to do so we will enjoy it
- Jordi Gomez


All three – who met the media at a press event on Thursday – could be involved, with Gus Poyet likely to give game time to a wide range of players.
“We have done some hard work but at this stage of the season it is important to work hard so you get the benefits during the season,” midfielder Gomez said ahead of the game.
“The team have been training for two weeks and now we are starting to play games, as a player that is what you want to do so we will enjoy it.”
Former West Brom defender Jones added: “It has been a good, hard pre-season as you would expect and we have put a lot of good work in, so now we are looking forward to the pre-season trip and playing some games.
“I am looking forward to the challenge of hopefully getting the shirt to keep and working hard to stay in the team.”
The Black Cats have been back in pre-season training for a little under two weeks and Saturday’s match is the first of three games in five days.
Poyet’s men will also travel to Carlisle and Hartlepool ahead of their pre-season training camp in Portugal.
The Darlington squad – who begin their season on the same day the Barclays Premier League kicks off – have already got two friendly outings under their belts.
A 2-1 defeat at Newcastle Benfield was followed by a 5-0 victory over Northallerton Town, with new signing and former Gateshead man Liam Hatch on target.
Meanwhile Graeme Armstrong scored twice, along with Amar Purewal and Tom Portas.
If you haven’t got a ticket for the game, full coverage will be available on safc.com, including a live blog, while updates will be running on social media.

13' GOAL! DARLINGTON 1883 0 SUNDERLAND 1. The Black Cats take the lead with their first goal of the pre-season and a well-worked move to boot. Watmore drove at the defence before slipping the ball through for Clayton, whose low delivery was finished by Steven Fletcher from three yards.

20' GOAL! Darlington 0 Sunderland 2. The Black Cats double their advantage and it's Fletcher again. The visitors won the ball back after the free-kick was cleared and George Honeyman rolled the ball into the path of Fletcher, who stroked the pass home from close range.

28' Great double save from Jameson in the Darlington goal as he twice blocks vicious efforts from Fletcher.

30' Sunderland break well as Cabral threads a ball through for Fletcher before Ba receives possession in the box, but the midfielder slips at the vital moment and Darlington clear. Half-hearted claims for a penalty are rejected.

31' Cabral and Fletcher race away on the end of a through-ball - but the offside flag's up to prevent what would have been a certain goal.

34' Great save! Thompson heads a cross goalwards at the near post, but Mannone blocks brilliantly!

37' Nine players in total warming up on the near-side touchline - looks like a fair few half-time changes!

44' Another opportunity for the visitors - this time it's El Hadji Ba, whose shot is blocked after Clayton picked him out with a low ball across the box.

Pantilimon warming up alongside Giaccherini is a sight to behold! The Italian just passes the Bidvest on the keeper's jumper!
