Preview

The Black Cats will travel down to West Yorkshire to face a struggling Huddersfield Town side at The John Smith’s Stadium tonight.

Sunderland have won just 1 of their last 8 league games, as they have been made to play without a striker due to injuries.

Everton loanee Ellis Simms made his return on Saturday against Luton for the last 20 minutes as he helped Sunderland equalise late on.

Huddersfield currently sit bottom of the league on just 15 points, despite beating Millwall last time out 1-0.

The Terriers made it to the play-off final last season, where they narrowly lost 1-0 to Nottingham Forrest.

Huddersfield could be on their way up as they have gone without a defeat in their last 2 games, keeping a clean sheet in both.

Ellis Simms will be involved again on Wednesday, as he continues his progress towards full fitness.

Ross Stewart and Dan Ballard have returned to light training as they continue to battle against their own injury problems.

Alex Pritchard is set to play against the club he left for Wearside in the summer of 2021 for the first time.

With a win, Sunderland could move up as far as 12th, whereas Huddersfield could climb off the bottom of the table to 23rd if they can secure the win.

Prediction

Score – Huddersfield 0-2 Sunderland

Scorers – Jack Clarke and Elliot Embleton
