Sunderland Preview – Can Black Cats produce winning start?

Following their League One play-off final win over Wycombe Wanderers with a 2-0 victory at Wembley Stadium, Sunderland return to the Championship after a four-year absence and will be looking for a positive start at home on Sunday lunchtime when they play host to Coventry City.

Sunderland finished last season in strong form on home soil at their Stadium of Light as the Black Cats put together what proved to be a decisive eight-match unbeaten run which included six wins and the hosts will be keen to extend this sequence on Sunday.

Our betting suggestion:
Both teams to score

Coventry City Preview – Can Sky Blues hold their own again?

Coventry City achieved their goal of consolidation in last season’s Championship campaign as the west midlands club finished in a comfortable mid-table position of 12th in the second tier table although they ended the campaign with just two wins from their last 10 matches overall.

However, the Sky Blues finished with an unbeaten four-match run away from home which included wins at Fulham and Birmingham City along with points gained in draws at West Brom and Stoke City, so they’re certainly no pushovers away from home.
