Debut strike for Ambrose

Last updated : 25 April 2003 By Martyn Elliott

The former Ipswich star volleyed us ahead after 30 minutes of the St James’ Park clash, but a goal either side of the break from Colin Heath gave the Red Devils victory.

In an entirely unsurprising development Carl Cort picked up a hamstring injury and had to leave the field midway through the second half.

Ambrose was substituted at half time together with Brian Kerr, which may indicate that they will both feature at Sunderland on Saturday.
