Black Cats claim first victory of Premier League Cup campaign, ending the Grecians' perfect start

Elliot Embleton (pictured above) was among the goalscorers as Sunderland earned their first victory in this year's Premier League Cup, beating Exeter City 2-1 at Eppleton Colliery Welfare Ground.

Exeter had won their first Group H fixture after progressing through the qualifying round but Embleton's deflected effort on 36 minutes and Luke Molyneux’s strike from outside the box put Sunderland 2-0 up after the break.

Liam McAlinden pulled a goal back with five minutes but Sunderland held on to go level with Exeter on three points from two matches.
