Sunderland vs Leicester Under 21s and Gillingham: welcome cup excitement or just more distraction?

Lei CUP (1)

A third season for Sunderland in League One seems unthinkable. If failure to win promotion last season was a failure, as the owners and then manager Jack Ross admitted would be the case, another stumble would be hard to bear. Phil Parkinson, working with his inherited squad, has had a patchy start as Ross’s successor, […]
