Sunderland Preview – Will reverting back to league action see the Black Cats return to winning ways?

Now in their third year at this level, the only objective for Phil Parkinson and his players is to lead Sunderland back to the Championship. The support have had little to be positive about over the past three years and with every season that passes without some success, it gets more difficult with the pressure ramping up. That has been apparent at the Stadium of Light of late.

Sunderland are coming into this game on the back of a couple of disappointing result in cup competitions. A dour home defeat in the first round of the FA Cup against Mansfield was particularly poor, along with a 2-1 defeat away to Fleetwood in the EFL Trophy. Parkinson has to try and take something positive from these defeats, in that it allows them to focus more on the league.


Our betting prediction:
Under 2.5 goals

In terms of their league form, Sunderland are looking for a third straight win after beating Gillingham and Ipswich. The latter of those wins particularly important due to the Tractor Boys being above them in the table and likely promotion rivals.
Sunderland’s only defeat in the league this season was a 3-1 reverse against old rivals Portsmouth and although sitting sixth coming into this, they are four points off top spot having played a game less.

MK Dons Preview – Are MK Dons set to continue their improvement in the league and extend their unbeaten run?

It may still be early in the season but it looks like this is going to be another campaign for MK Dons where they are fighting against relegation. They finished just two places above the bottom three last season and are occupying the same position coming into this game. The two teams directly below them have played two games fewer, however, which be of real concern for Russell Martin who celebrates a year in charge of the club this month.

Martin will take some encouragement from the last three league games where they have taken five points. MK Dons did edge past Eastleigh to reach the second round of the FA Cup, too.

With just two wins all season it has been a grind to date. And facing two of the current top six and promotion hopefuls in their next two games is going to be very testing for them. The Dons are also looking for their first away win of the season having drawn two and losing the other four.

Midfielder Scott Fraser made the move from Burton in the summer and has been a shining light with three goals in his 10 league appearances.

Sunderland vs MK Dons Betting Advice

These two teams have contrasting hopes and expectations for this season and in this game. Sunderland will be hurting after their FA Cup defeat but they have been consistent in the league so far. MK Dons are obviously hoping for their first away win of the league season but you have to assume they would be happy with a point all things considered.

If Martin’s team can get a point then it will be the first time they have gotten anything from Sunderland in a league fixture.

Key Facts – Sunderland vs MK Dons Betting Tip

  • Sunderland have lost only one of their 10 league games and are four points off top spot
  • MK have moved out the bottom three in recent weeks with five points from their last three league matches
  • Sunderland have won all four league meetings against MK Dons


Unfortunately for the visitors, I’m confident this will be more of the same in this fixture. Sunderland might not be the finished article but they should still have too much here. Back the home team to get their fourth home win in five attempts.
