Sunderland

Last updated: Sat 16 February 2019 07:05
In Brief

Held to a 1:1 draw by Blackpool. Lee Cattermole and Max Power both return. Duncan Watmore is out. Reece James is the latest concern.

Looking Back

Sunderland created plenty of chances but were poor in front of goal but had to settle for a 1:1 draw versus Blackpool.

The Black Cats are enduring a very frustrating run at the moment, having won only one of their last six games, drawing the other five.

Looking Ahead

Bryan Oviedo has a chance of returning. He training on Thursday but faces a late fitness test.

Reece James had to come off in midweek and is the latest concern.

Lee Catermole returns into the mix, having missed the previous game due to the after-effects of an injury.

Max Power is also back after missing the midweek game due to becoming a father.

However, Duncan Watmore, who started the previous game, will now miss out.

Points of Interest

Sunderland remain unbeaten at home this season, but seven of their fifteen home games have ended in draws.

Accrington Stanley

Last updated: Sat 16 February 2019 07:05
In Brief

Suffered a 2:0 defeat at Scunthorpe. Have been poor for months. Sam Finley remains banned. Ross Sykes is doubtful.

Looking Back

Accrington Stanley had their chances in their last week's game at Scunthorpe, but their poor run continued with a 2:0 defeat.

Stanley started the season well but have been dire for a while now. They are at the bottom of the table on points collected over the last fifteen games.

Looking Ahead

Sam Finley remains unavailable for selection, as he continues serving a five-match suspension.

Ross Sykes is nursing an injury and is the sole other player who could miss out.

Points of Interest

Stanley have won only one of their last nine away games. This is after winning four of their opening seven.
