Sunderland VS Watford – Match Preview & Prediction

The Black Cats have the chance to edge closer to the play-offs against Watford in front of a sold-out Stadium of Light for their final home game of the league season.

Sunderland dropped out of the play-off places due to Millwall beating Blackpool yesterday, but a win would see them move back above them.

Depending on other results, Sunderland could move as high as 5th going into the final game against Preston next Monday.

Watford have won just 1 of their last 7 games, losing their last 2 matches.

Sunderland are unbeaten in their last 7, and they have won 3 of their last 4 games.

Last time out, Dennis Cirkin scored a brace which saw Sunderland come back from behind to beat West Brom at The Hawthorns.

When the 2 sides met at Vicarage Road earlier in the season, a late Jewison Bennette equaliser saw Sunderland earn a vital point in a 2-2 draw.

Mowbray confirmed in his press conference that he is expecting the same squad of players that played the game against West Brom.
