Pic Special: Academy Derby Day
The first Tyne-Wear derby of the season took place on Saturday at Sunderland's Academy of Light - and it was the Black Cats who came out on top on this occasion.
In a typically hard-fought affair, George Honeyman gave them the lead before Martin Smith doubled the advantage. And although Alex Gilliead pulled one back, Mikael Mandron made it 3-1 at half-time from the penalty spot.
Back came the Magpies, with Macaulay Gillesphey heading home, but Mandron got his second to wrap the match up for the hosts. Barry Pells captured some of the action for nufc.co.uk.
