Joel Robles saw his first action of the season after being selected in goal, while Tom Davies, a second-half substitute for the senior side against the Black Cats last night, was also in the side along with Mason Holgate and new signing Dominic Calvert-Lewin.
George Brady's second-half goal for the visitors proved to be the difference, however.

Dominic Calvert-Lewin looked to have a bit about him. Built like a beanpole, he has skill with the ball at his feet and has pace and played well alongside Calum Dyson who also showed well.
The goal came from a free-kick on the left touchline which was curled towards goal and Robles came for it and got there just after a Sunderland players head and the ball sailed into an unguarded goal.
