Manager Bryan Gunn is looking forward to a reunion with two former team-mates after Norwich were drawn at home to Sunderland in the second round of the Carling Cup
The Canaries will take on the Black Cats in a repeat of the 1985 final - Asa Hartford's deflected effort handing City a 1-0 win at Wembley - after they beat Yeovil 4-0 at Huish Park on Tuesday.
Gunn told the club`s official website: "I`m delighted we`ve got a home draw against a Premier League club and especially that it`s Sunderland with all the memories of the friendly final in 1985.
"Also for me personally it`s a chance to meet up with two former team-mates in the shape of Steve Bruce and their assistant boss Eric Black, who I played with at Norwich and Aberdeen respectively.
"It`s an interesting tie and for our players a chance to pit their wits against Premier League players as they did to good effect when we played Wigan recently.
"There`s no reason why our players should be anything other than really up for the challenge of playing against these guys - we will be looking to win the tie and progress to the next round."
