'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Bruce Has Faith In Young Guns

Sunderland manager Steve Bruce is excited by his team as he heads into his first ever Tyne-Wear battle and believes he has the players to deliver the crucial three points.

Sunderland have the youngest average age in the whole of the league and so far they have gone seven games unbeaten.

After watching our rivals get lashed 4-0 in the Carling Cup, the team will head to Tyneside in a bouyant mood.


Bruce said: 'Certainly what we have got is a young, hungry, aggressive team which can only get better.

'As I look through the midfield four, for example, Welbeck is 19, Cattermole is 22, Henderson is 20, Elmohamady is 23, so they are all just learning their trade.

'But that's what we wanted, that's what I wanted and Niall has backed me on that.

'We wanted a really, really young, energetic team to take the club forward.'
