Preview

The Black Cats travel down to Luton with yet another sold out away following, as the lads try to bounce back following an extremely disappointing defeat last weekend.

Sunderland suffered a defeat to Burnley last week at The Stadium of Light, despite being 2-0 up at half-time.

Burnley scored 3 goals in 19 minutes to turn the game onto its head, before finishing Sunderland off in the final few minutes to make it 2-4.

The Black Cats have won 1 of their last 7 games as they continue to struggle without a recognised striker in the squad.

Sunderland’s opponents, Luton have lost just 1 game in their last 8, as the climb the league table into 9th, just 2 points outside the play-off positions.

Last time out for Luton, they suffered an embarrassing 4-0 defeat against Watford, bringing their impressive 7 game unbeaten run to an end.

Luton’s top scorer, Carlton Morris has 10 goal contributions so far this season, and Sunderland will be hoping they can keep him quiet.

Sunderland may finally have a striker on Saturday, as Ellis Simms may be in contention for a return after being out for 6 weeks.

Patrick Roberts could also return after sitting out against Burnley as he suffered a knock in training.

Lynden Gooch and Aji Alese are expected to miss the next few matches.
