Elliott Impleton and Jack Diamond are taking advantage of loan spells as they move to Sunderland senior team, according to Phil Parkinson.

Impleton and Diamond were among a handful of Academy alumni – also Dan Neal, Anthony Patterson and Brandon Taylor, who started the Black Cats’ EFL Trophy in Fleetwood Town in the middle of the week.

Diamond was on the edge of the first team squad this season, while Mumbleton completed his first 90 minutes in more than a year after suffering from injuries that kept him out of action for long periods.. .

Diamond spent the last season on loan at Harrogate Town, where the 20-year-old helped the club win the promotion from the National League to the Second League, while the 21-year-old spent the 2018-19 season on loan at Grimsby. City.

“I spoke to Embo that day and was telling him that while he was on loan at Grimsby, he learned things that are hard to teach players on the training field – how to handle different types of games, different stresses within games.

“And it was like this for Jack, who ran a roadshow with Harrogate, which got them out of the tough section..

With Sunderland already qualified for the knockout stages of the Premier League Cup, Parkinson used the match at Fleetwood to give a chance to some of the club’s budding talent.

« Dan is a little younger than the other two, he appeared on the scene in the pre-season and did really well, and he has now played three games at the first team level, which is a good progress for him. ».

“Dan is a good player and was impressive in the run-up to the new season, although some of his early career was disrupted by injuries..

“His training levels have dropped a little bit at times, which you’d expect, but he’s talented.

“We’re so happy Jack has hit a real beat. There are areas of his game in which he needs improvement but you would expect him to be a young player.

«  Embo is still a project moving forward, but it was great to see him play a full 90 minutes the other night because he hadn’t done it in over a year.

It is not expected that Impleton will participate in Sunderland’s first league match against MK Dons at Al Noor Stadium this afternoon, as Parkinson said the midfielder was «  stiff and sore  » after his first full game since August 2019 in mid the week.

Diamond and / or Neil could be in matchday squad, although Parkinson will likely return to his top players against the Dunes..

Sunderland enters the match sixth in the standings, but only one point ahead of second-placed Ipswich Town – who beat them in the last league game – and Parkinson says he should not take advantage of sixth-placed MK Duns.. .

« Away from home, in Swindon our pressure was amazing; against Ipswich at home it was good for the first 35 minutes or so, then we lost a little way in the second half.

« In order to press properly, we need energy around the field, running power, and tactical understanding of how to do this because MK Dons are a good team, pass the ball from behind, and they have some fun ways to try to play through you. ».
