Flanagan, Maguire & Grigg To Return | 4-2-3-1 Sunderland Predicted Lineup Vs Peterborough

The games are coming thick and fast for Sunderland as they take on Peterborough United today. The Black Cats have had a few games in hand for quite some time now, and it is time for them to make it count if they want to qualify to the Championship via the automatic promotion spots.

Peterborough aren’t going to be any walkovers at the ABAX Stadium as they still have an outside chance to get into the playoffs. They sit on the seventh spot, and the Posh would try to get something from the game to keep their hopes alive. Sunderland were held to a 2-2 draw when the two teams met last year. The Black Cats are coming on the back of a 2-0 win over Doncaster Rovers on Good Friday.

Team News 

Reece James and Adam Matthews are expected to miss out. Aiden McGeady started the last game, but it was clear that he wasn’t still a hundred percent. Lynden Gooch played a part from the bench in the previous game. Duncan Watmore is likely to be sidelined.

Sunderland Predicted Lineup Vs Peterborough United

Formation (4-2-3-1)

Jack Ross reverted back to 4-2-3-1 from 4-4-2 after conceding five against Coventry. The change in formation helped them keep a clean sheet, and we feel that he might once again opt for defensive stability.

Defence

Scottish custodian Jon McLaughlin is a nailed on starter in goal. Jack Ross made changes to the back line after the Coventry defeat. We expect Tom Flanagan to come back in the lineup. He should be partnered by Burnley loanee Jimmy Dunne who played the last game against Doncaster Rovers. Given that this fixture is coming so soon, we expect Ross to start Denver Hume over Bryan Oviedo down the left. Luke O’Nien is the only reliable option for the right-back role, so we expect him to continue even in this game.

Midfield

The experienced midfield pairing of Lee Cattermole and Grant Leadbitter could start together in this game. Further up front in a no. 10 role, George Honeyman should operate. Chris Maguire was on the bench in the last game, and he didn’t play any part in it. Ross should unleash him from the start down the right in this game. Lewis Morgan has been in good form recently and is expected to start from left. Aiden McGeady can come off the bench later on.

Attack

Charlie Wyke played the last tie, and it would be better for Ross to go in with Will Grigg up front who should be relatively fresh.
