Norwich VS Sunderland – Match Preview & Prediction

The Black Cats travel over 250 miles down to Carrow Road as they look to bounce back, following three straight defeats.

Last time out, Sunderland suffered a 1-5 home defeat to Alex Neil’s Stoke City, but they will be looking to put that behind them and get back on track.

Their opponents are on great form at the moment, winning their last 3 games as they look to challenge for a play-off place.

Norwich also haven’t been defeated in their last 5 games, winning 4 and drawing 1.

Sunderland will need to try their best to keep Teemu Pukki and Josh Sargemt quiet as between them, they have a total of 31 goal contributions this season.

With a victory, Sunderland would move up to 10th, five points away from the play-offs.

Norwich will be looking to move into the play-offs and into 5th if they get all three points.

Aji Alese will unfortunately miss the rest of the season with injury, and Mowbray also confirmed that another player I’d likely to miss the remainder of the season, but he did not name that player.

Dennis Cirkin and Lyden Gooch are both nearing a return to the squad following their injury, but they are both doubtful for this game.
