Baggies overcome high-flying Black Cats
MANI O’Sullivan fired a brace as Albion extended their winning streak to three Barclays U21 Premier League games with a 2-1 victory at Sunderland this evening.
O’Sullivan (pictured) netted either side of a Liam Agnew spot-kick as the Baggies recorded their fourth league victory of the campaign.
"The lads played really well," said senior professional development coach, David Oldfield.
"It was a strong team performance and an excellent result.
"They had to dig deep against what is a good Sunderland team.
"Sunderland have been in impressive form and the boys had to give their all to win the game.
"I was impressed by the players tonight."
