Sunderland and Barnsley are currently in a see-saw battle for the second spot in the League One. After a midweek draw against Burton Albion, the Black Cats lead Barnsley by one point with a game in hand. Therefore Sunderland have their destiny in their command, and they will host 9th placed Coventry City at the Stadium of Light this weekend.
Coventry are currently winless in their last three games. When the two sides met last year, the match ended in 1-1 draw. The Black Cats have been guilty of drawing far too many games as they have drawn 17 games this season, the most of any team in the division. Therefore even though Jack Ross’ men have suffered just two losses this season, they are in a close battle with other teams for the direct promotion spots.
Jack Ross is likely to miss quite a few of his essential players once again. However, he indicated that some players could be available by Saturday. He said (Sunderland Echo), ”The only ones potentially back for Saturday would be Lee Cattermole, possibly. Aiden McGeady possibly. Chris Maguire a very, very outside chance. The rest will still be unavailable on Saturday.”
Dylan McGeouch is also a doubt after he suffered an injury against Burton. Adam Matthews, Duncan Watmore, Reece James and Lynden Gooch are expected to miss out.
Sunderland Predicted Lineup Vs Coventry City
Jon McLaughlin is a nailed on starter for his side in goal. Tom Flanagan and Jack Baldwin are expected to partner up at the back in the centre back role. Both of them were on the scoresheet in the last game, but Flanagan found the wrong net as he conceded an own goal.
Bryan Oviedo should continue in the left-back role ahead of Denver Hume. Luke O’Nien is expected to start as the right back once again.
Quite a few players are likely to be assessed closer to the match day, and it can go either way at the moment. Lee Cattermole is expected to feature in the squad, but he could miss out from the starting eleven. Grant Leadbitter is likely to start in the middle, and Max Power should come in to partner him in central areas.
George Honeyman is expected to operate from the right flank. Lewis Morgan has been impressive, and he should be starting down the left.
Sunderland have looked better when they have started with two up front. We expect Ross to continue with that formula by using Charlie Wyke and Will Grigg together.
