Villa took an early two goal lead, before Sunderland pulled one back shortly before half time. I’d have said for the first 30 minutes Villa were clearly on top and could well have won by a bigger margin, although Villan57 blames himself for watching the second half which he called Sunderland to be on top with Craig Hill taking a Man of the Match performance to keep us in it with a string of very fine saves.

Villa:

Hill, Barton, Williams (Bateman 69), Stieber, Devine (Lyden 83), Donacien, Albrighton, Carruthers, Drennan, Burke, Graham.

Subs:

Barrett, Melvin, Ward.

Goals – Albrighton (8), Burke (13)

Sunderland:

Wilson, Marrs, Adams, Reed, Oliver, Ferguson, Mitchell, Gorrin, Laidler, Deacon (Mandron 54), Lynch.

Subs:

Joyce, Dixon, Armstrong, Harrison.

Goals – Gorrin (45)

Villa move into third place in the U21 league following the victory.

Will be updated in due course.
