Lee Cattermole played the full 90 minutes for the young Black Cats and Kevin Ball was pleased to see the Stockton-born midfielder step up his fitness levels.
Kevin Ball: “For any of the senior lads it’s an opportunity for them to have 90 minutes and I think that’s probably the best thing for them.
“But, the likes of Lee Cattermole playing, it probably gave a boost to Burnley because they were a bit younger and they probably thought to themselves that it was a good chance to pit their wits against senior players.”
