Two Josh Coburn goals and one from Harry Green earned our Under-23s victory at Sunderland.

Green struck after just two minutes before Coburn doubled the advantage on the stroke of half-time.

Coburn made it 3-0 two minutes into the second half and although Tyrese Dyce pulled one back for the home side, Boro recorded a comfortable victory.

The win lifts Graeme Lee's side into the PL2 Division 2 play-off places.
