Sunderland under 21s emulated their senior side’s weekend success as they beat Newcastle United 2-0.

Laidler netted from the spot after Connor Oliver was fouled and Smith grabbed his goal on his Stadium of Light debut when he raced on to Lynden Gooch’s through ball.

Warren Joyce celebrated three points on his 100th match in charge of Manchester United as Davide Petrucci’s free-kick earned them a win against Leicester City.

Craig Tanner and Jack Stacey netted the goals as Reading upset Aston Villa away from home. The three points puts them just two behind Wolverhampton Wanderers and Newcastle United in 19th and 20th respectively. Blackburn Rovers remain bottom.

Full results:

Aston Villa 0-2 Reading, Leicester City 0-1 Manchester United, Middlesbrough 1-2 Stoke City, Sunderland 2-0 Newcastle United, Tottenham Hotspur 0-0 Everton, Liverpool P-P Wolverhampton Wanderers, Southampton P-P Fulham
