THE majority of Sunderland’s first team will not figure against Recreativo Huelva as Gustavo Poyet’s gives a number of young guns a chance to shine.

Poyet is likely to give the likes of Vito Mannone, Valentin Roberge and Liam Bridcutt a run out from the bench at the Estadio Municipal de Albufeira , but the vast majority of Poyet’s Premier League starters are in the main stand watching.

That means run outs for the likes of Mikael Mandron, Carl Lawson and Duncan Watmore, while Bridcutt will be given some extra running time after missing three friendlies this summer through injury.

Sunderland: Dixon, Ferguson, Beadling, McNamee, Cartwright, Agnew, Smith, Honeyman, Lawson, Watmore, Mandron. Subs: Ba, Mannone, Roberge, Bridcutt, Mavrias, N'Diaye. 

Recreativo de Huelva: Ruben, Víctor Díaz, Menosse, Juanan, Fernando Vega, Dimas, Montoro, Núñez, Cabrera, Adan, Josmar Zambrano.
