Sunderland Preview – Yet another win for the Black Cats?

Lee Johnson’s Sunderland have made an excellent start to their season, taking 12 points from a possible 15. After a few failed promotion attempts, the Blacks Cats will be desperate to finally get over the line at the end of this season.

Sunderland have won six of their opening seven league and cup fixtures at the start of this term. In League One, Johnson’s troops have seen off Wigan Athletic, MK Dons, Wimbledon and Wycombe Wanderers. They have also beaten Port Vale and Blackpool in the cup. Their only defeat came against in-form Burton Albion in mid-August.

Our betting prediction:
Sunderland to win to nil

Bet at 22Bet


(odds taken 1256 GMT, Friday 10 September)

Sunderland will be gunning for a fourth league and cup win on the bounce at the weekend. At the time of writing, the hosts are priced at 4/6.

Accrington Stanley Preview – Can Accy upset Sunderland?

John Coleman’s Accrington Stanley have been the surprise package in League One so far. After a mid-table finish last term, Accy have been quick out of the blocks this season, winning four of their opening six. They are currently joint top with Sunderland.

Stanley lost at Wycombe on the opening weekend but bounced back with successive wins over Cambridge United, Doncaster United and Crewe Alexandra. After a 2-0 reverse at MK Dons, Accrington were back to winning ways last weekend, edging past Shrewsbury Town at the Crown Ground.

Sunderland vs Accrington Stanley Betting Advice

These two played out a six-goal thriller at the Stadium of Light back in April. Accrington came from two down to draw level before Max Power’s goal seven minutes from time put the Black Cats back in front. However, Sean McConville rescued a point for Stanley. Sunderland ran out 2-0 winners in the reverse game, with Ross Stewart and Charlie Wyke getting the goals.
