George Honeyman scored the only goal of the game as Sunderland edged past Bury 1-0 in the first round of the Carabao Cup on Thursday evening.
In a game that saw chances at a premium, the 22-year-old chipped over Bury goalkeeper Joe Murphy in the 69th minute to seal the Black Cats’ spot in the second-round draw.
The Shakers saw their captain Stephen Dawson substituted in the 16th minute as he was stretchered off with a knee injury and never truly tested Sunderland’s defence.
