Phil Parkinson has revealed Sunderland’s upcoming visit to Fleetwood Town in the Papa John’s Trophy will be a chance for several youngsters to gain first-team minutes.
The manager has confirmed numerous Under-23 players will be involved in tonight’s contest at Highbury Stadium, as we look to finish our group matches with a 100% record against the Cod Army – who, like the Lads, have also already booked their place in the knockout stages.
“It’s a game where we want to give an opportunity to some young players who have deserved a chance. We’ve already qualified, but we want to give a good account of ourselves,” Parkinson disclosed.
“The Under-23s have performed well this season and secured some impressive results, so it’s important they get a chance to show what they can do on the first-team stage.
“The team will be made up of plenty of young players tonight, along with first-team lads who need more minutes under their belts – the likes of Elliot [Embleton] and Callum [McFadzean] will benefit from that.”
Parkinson admitted he remains very frustrated by the Black Cats’ Emirates FA Cup defeat by Mansfield Town at the weekend, but insisted this must not take attention away from the task at hand, and the opportunity to showcase our young talent.
“We’re looking at working on what went wrong on Saturday, like when you lose any game, but we don’t want it to detract from giving opportunities and minutes to players at Fleetwood tonight.
“I’m very frustrated and angry with the defeat against Mansfield, but what’s important is we don’t let the anger from losing at the weekend affect what we’re trying to do in that regard.
“We’re looking ahead to this game here and planning for tonight, and giving the chances that players deserve.”

Parky says “We’re looking at working on what went wrong on Saturday, like when you lose any game,    If that is the case why has he not learnt anything from previous games or does he not bother when they get a lucky draw?

I personally feel that PP gets some bad press.

We dont have good strikers but is that PP's fault?

He inherited most and has had to beg steal and borrow others, he as had no cash.

Play the young kids I hear, the young strikers have done OK at best but none have set the world alight.

How often does the opposition come out second half and are all over the pitch showing desire for the ball and we can't cope. Surely Parky should have devised tactics to counteract fast counter attacks before now if he looks at why we conceded goals previously. How many crosses do we put into the box and there's only one player there.

MATCH REPORT:Narrow defeat for youthful Lads side

[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]
 
Dan Godfrey
10 November, 2020


 
Fleetwood Town 2-1 Sunderland
Sunderland must settle for second in Group A of the Papa John’s Trophy Northern section after a narrow defeat to group winners Fleetwood Town at Highbury Stadium.
Callum McFadzean’s first goal for the club put us in front early on in a game between two already-qualified teams, before debutant Ollie Younger was replaced by Cieran Dunne on the brink of half-time with what looked to be an injury to the back of his leg.
Dunne himself then had to be taken off with an arm injury, before Barrie McKay levelled for the home side at the start of the second half.
Mark Duffy soon put Fleetwood ahead, on an evening where injuries took their toll for Phil Parkinson and Sunderland in Lancashire – McFadzean then forced from the field with a hamstring strain before Duffy later came off injured himself.
On a bright spark for the Lads, six players made their debuts on the night including the sadly injured Younger and Dunne, with Anthony Patterson, Josh Hawkes, Vinnie Steels and Sam Wilding also entering the history books as first-team players.
The manager again made eight changes to his starting XI from the weekend Emirates FA Cup tie with Mansfield Town – Dan Neil and Brandon Taylor also started in a youthful side, along with Elliot Embleton, marking his return with his first start of the season following his weekend cameo. Jordan Willis returned to captain the side.
A substitutes’ bench with an average age of just 19 was named including two 17-year-olds, along with 21-year-old Mitch Curry, who scored both goals for our Under-23s against Wolves last week.
Patterson was called into impressive occasional action during the opening 45 minutes, first dealing with a header from Fleetwood’s James Hill, before denying Josh Morris twice.
But it would be Sunderland who created the first clear-cut chance and moments later scored with their second. Younger saw the crossbar deny him a fairytale start to his senior career with the Lads, Fleetwood then blocking McFadzean’s follow-up.
And our newest signing was on hand to notch the opener in just his second match, making space for himself before driving a firm deflected strike home off the post with 15 minutes on the clock.
With Fleetwood trying to push after conceding and the Lads playing on the counter-attack, the impressive wing-backs McFadzean and Jack Diamond continued to be heavily involved, and scorer McFadzean picked out the run of Embleton – his neat turn and cross-shot ricocheting off the outside of the near post.
The woodwork saved Fleetwood again with three minutes remaining of the half, as Shayden Morris headed Embleton’s threatening set-piece delivery onto the top of the crossbar.
This came shortly after the initial impact of Younger’s injury – the centre-half sustaining a blow to the back of his knee in a challenge on the left-hand channel. After his initial attempts to continue what had been a solid first start, youngster Dunne was on hand to replace him moments later for a fourth debut of the night as the half drew to a close.
In the first notable action of the second half, Dunne suffered even more unfortunate luck, picking up an injury to his arm which was deemed unable to carry on with by physios from both dugouts. On came Steels, for a fifth new Sunderland first-team player.
It was shortly after when the Lads’ defence was breached, as an attack from Josh Morris down Fleetwood’s left-hand side came off, delivering for McKay to slide home the equaliser.
And the hosts showed a relentless start to the second period, as Duffy met Shayden Morris’ pull-back in space inside the area to finish calmly. The injury list on the night for the Lads then bordered on extraordinary, as McFadzean’s night came to a premature end with a hamstring problem – Wilding on for his first-team bow as Parkinson was forced to shuffle his pack even further.
Fleetwood continued to assert themselves well, McKay inches away from adding to his tally with a curling free kick onto the bar, before later on being denied by a terrific recovery block from George Dobson just inside the area. Duffy – scorer of the decisive goal – then suffered a hamstring strain of his own, incredibly a fourth injury of the night.
Embleton and Diamond’s deliveries appeared the most productive outlet in a frustrating second half for the Lads, Hawkes and Diamond himself seeing shots blocked, but Fleetwood were able to see out the game as both clubs now await our fate in the knockout stages of the competition.


Sunderland: Patterson; Taylor, Willis ©, Younger (Dunne 45’ (Steels 48’)); Diamond, Neil, Dobson, Embleton, McFadzean (Wilding 61’); Hawkes, O’Brien.
Subs not used: Richardson, Wearne, Curry, Almond.


Fleetwood Town: Cairns, Smith, Hill, Holgate, Rydel, Duffy (Boyle 86’), Rossiter © (Baggley 46’), Finley (Barrett 89’), J. Morris, McKay, S. Morris.
Subs not used: Leutwiler, Edwards, Hayes.

If scoring is the problem I'm sure O'Brien is not the solution

It was a nothing game with both teams already through.

I give PP credit for playing the bairns. Until the injuries for which PP cannot be blamed (unless we have reverted back to the Steve Bruce method of training) we were easily the better team. 
Once again we did not take our chances to kill the game off although a couple of efforts were unlucky.

The injuries deffo changed the game in their favour. Would we have held on? Would we have scored more? To be honest although the team tired we got valuable game time into them and I think most of them came away with a lot of credit. Hopefully this gives PP some selction headaches.

I was impressed overall and it bodes well for the future watching a team who passed, tackled and had pace.

Although the opposition will be tougher at the weekend I would still leave Grigg & Graham out. They are both drawing a wage for absolutely no return in my humble opinion. Stick Curry on the bench. At least the lad has pace.
