Sunderland have been drawn to host Newcastle United's under-21s in the last 16 of the Checkatrade Trophy - but Black Cats fans are not too excited about it.

Those views were echoed by a number of Sunderland fans.



Twitter user ConnorSAFC1994 said: " Newcastle is a lose lose situation for us.



Not all Sunderland fans are dreading it though.

Matt Hartley said: "Why are people having a meltdown over the checkatrade draw?

If we win it’s only their u21s, if we lose we’ve lost to their u21s."

Sunderland's demise in recent years mean they've had to enter a first team into the Football League Trophy, while Newcastle have entered an U21 side as an invited category A academy.
