Plymouth vs Sunderland lineups and latest team news

Plymouth

Plymouth manager, Steven Schumacher has a few injury concerns ahead of with the game at both ends of the pitch. Brendan Galloway and Saxon Earley are both missing from the back while Ryan Hardie and Mustapha Bundu are in a battle to start the game up front after missing the game against Leeds last time out.

Morgan Whittaker will be key for Plymouth with the winger shining from out wide so far this season with seven goals while Finn Azaz will offer support on the other flank. Luke Cundle is likely to get the nod in between the duo providing Bundu and Hardie don't make it.

Predicted lineup

Cooper – Pleguezuelo, Scarr, Gibson – Mumba, Houghton, Randell, Kesler-Hayden – Whittaker, Cundle, Azaz

Sunderland

Tony Mowbray has no new issues or returns to his squad from their last game against Birmingham so there is every chance that the ex-Blackburn boss sticks with the same eleven for the trip to Plymouth. Dan Ballard and Jay Matete are both still out injured and the game looks like it will come too soon for Luke O'Nien.

The key man for the Black Cats will be Jack Clare who is finally becoming the player many people expected him to become when he was at Leeds. He is currently on nine goals for the campaign from the wing and will be full of confidence ahead of this one.

Predicted lineup

Patterson – Huggins, Seelt, Triantis, Hume – Ekwah, Bellingham Neil – Roberts, Rusyn, Clarke

Player to watch: Jack Clarke

Jack Clarke first burst onto the scene with Leeds United five years ago and perhaps shouldn't have moved to Spurs so early in his career. He has found a home in Sunderland, though, and is thriving for the Black cats.
