Sunderland vs Ipswich Town match preview

The 12th and final fixture of the opening round of the new Championship season is set to play out at the Stadium of Light on Sunday, August 6th.

The matchup in question will see Sunderland act as hosts, in a meeting with newly-promoted Ipswich Town.

Beginning with the former, Sunderland, of course, are primed to head into the campaign hopeful of going one better than last term.

This comes after the Black Cats defied the odds in battling their way to the promotion playoffs, only to be sent packing by Premier League-bound Luton Town.

The decision to confirm Tony Mowbray on the bench for 2023/24 should prove a fruitful one when it comes to continuity at the Stadium of Light, with the summer additions of the likes of Jobe Bellingham and Bradley Dack set to add further depth to a squad still very much under construction.

One blow, though, and a considerable one at that, has come in the form of dazzling loanee Amad Diallo’s return to base with Manchester United.

Turning attentions towards Sunday’s visitors, Ipswich, of course, will head into proceedings raring to kick their Championship return back into gear.

The Blues bid League One farewell earlier this summer, after finishing as runners-up in England’s 3rd tier with a haul of 98 points.

Their bid to stave off a swift relegation, meanwhile, will be aided by the arrivals of no fewer than five fresh faces, headlined by promising Chelsea talent Omari Hutchinson.

Just how ready, though, are Kieran McKenna’s troops for the rigours of Championship football?

As much is yet to be decided, but we at 101 predict a less than ideal start this weekend, backing Sunderland to put Ipswich to the sword come the full-time whistle at the Stadium of Light.
