Match preview

A Sunderland outfit desperate for a return to winning ways are set to act as hosts, in a Championship meeting with Stoke City this Saturday, March 4th.

The Black Cats, of course, have long set their sights on a spot in the promotion playoff as their season goal.

The last couple of weeks, though, have seen Tony Mowbray’s troops’ hopes of as much dealt a series of blows.

After racking up ten points from an available twelve heading into mid-February, Sunderland have since failed to secure victory in any of their last three, whilst slipping to defeat in two on the bounce.

Last time out, a trip to Coventry City saw Amad Diallo’s late finish prove little more than a consolation, en route to a 2-1 final scoreline.

Mowbray and co, in turn, have slipped off the playoff pace to the depths of ninth, a full five points adrift of sixth-placed Luton Town.

Safe to say, then, that clinching a bounce-back result has emerged as something of a must for Saturday’s hosts at the Stadium of Light.

Upcoming opponents Stoke City, though, will head into proceedings eyeing as much themselves.

The Potters have too proven altogether inconsistent of late, albeit on a more week-to-week basis than Sunderland.

All told, across their last four, Alex Neil’s men have notched two wins and two defeats, in the sequence of W-L-W-L.

Most recently, last time out, despite dominating in both possession and chances created, a solitary strike on the part of Millwall’s Zian Flemming proved enough to put Stoke to the sword at The Bet365 Stadium.

The Potters, in turn, find themselves in a lowly 17th in the Championship table, albeit a full nine points clear of the drop zone.

Not only that, but they were also sent packing from the FA Cup in midweek, owing to a hard-fought defeat at the hands of top-flight Brighton & Hove Albion.

Despite their recent struggles, hosts Sunderland should therefore head into Saturday’s Stadium of Light clash in possession of favourite status.

We at 101, though, would not be all that surprised to see Stoke ultimately battle their way to a share of the spoils.
