Sunderland Preview – Can Neil’s Black Cats secure a crucial three points?

Sunderland have been in poor form since the start of the year. They ended 2021 with a thumping 5-0 home victory over Sheffield Wednesday, but the Black Cats have picked up just two league wins from 12 in 2022.

After a woeful run of four defeats and a draw from five, Sunderland have stopped the rot in recent weeks, though. Alex Neil’s side are unbeaten in three, seeing off Wigan Athletic 3-0 away from home and drawing with Burton Albion and Charlton Athletic.

Our betting prediction:
Both teams to score – No

(odds taken 1710 GMT, Monday 7 March)

Sunderland have dropped out of the top six after the recent results, but three points on Tuesday will get them back on track. The bookies have the home victory priced at 8/13.

Fleetwood Town Preview – Can the Cod Army end winless run?

Stephen Crainey has had a tough start to his managerial career at Highbury Stadium since taking over from Simon Grayson on a permanent basis in late December. Since shocking Rotherham United in mid-January, which was a fourth win in six, the Cod Army have gone on to draw five and lose four of nine League One games.

Fleetwood have been dragged back down towards the bottom three. Town are in 19th spot with 33 points to their name, only three points above 21st-place Morecambe. Overall, Fleetwood have won seven, drawn 12 and lost 15.

The two teams played out an entertaining four-goal draw when they met at Highbury earlier in the season. The Black Cats were two up and cruising, but late goals from Callum Morton and Gerard Garner earned Fleetwood a share of the spoils.

They have only met eight times before, with five of those ending in draws. The Mackems’ 2-0 success at the Stadium of Light back in February last year is their only victory over Fleetwood.
