Sunderland Preview – Can Sunderland continue upward surge?

It took a little time and more patience from the Sunderland fans but the recent appointment of manager Phil Parkinson is now starting to reap rewards as Sunderland have lifted themselves back up to 6th place in League One and a place in the play-off pack ahead of this Friday night clash against Doncaster Rovers.

Parkinson oversaw just 2 wins from his first 9 matches in charge of the Black Cats which were victories over relegation candidates, Tranmere Rovers and Southend United, and the pressure was upon the former Bradford City boss to deliver.

But deliver he (and Sunderland have) as the hosts have won 4 of their last 5 matches in the third tier with wins collected against tonight’s opponents, Doncaster Rovers (2-1 away) as well as Lincoln City, Wycombe Wanderers and MK Dons.

A home record of 7-5-1 25/10 includes winning their last two home matches on the trot but it is just 2 wins out of their last 6 matches at their Stadium of Light where the pressure for the hosts to perform is tremendous.

Our betting suggestion:
Both teams to score

Doncaster Rovers Preview – Can Doncaster frustrate their hosts?

Following a promising 3-match winning streak in League One, Doncaster Rovers stumbled to a 1-0 defeat at home to Coventry City last weekend which saw Rovers drop down the table to 10th place.

Doncaster had previously registered wins against Oxford United, Shrewsbury Town and Bristol Rovers (the latter a 2-0 win at the Memorial Stadium), so the visitors may still fancy their chances of making life difficult for Sunderland in this Friday night encounter.

Despite results away from home being pretty inconsistent so far this season and they possess an away record of 3-3-3 15/9, Doncaster head up to the north-east having won 3 of their last 5 matches away from home, including a 7-1 thrashing of Southend United and wins at 8th placed Peterborough United 3-0 and Bristol Rovers 2-0.

In addition, Doncaster have kept clean sheets in their last two away matches on the trot.
