Sunderland vs Sunderland Predictions


Sunderland’s poor run of form in League One has dented their push for automatic promotion. Blackpool have struggled for wins, leaving them on the brink of the play-off places. I am tipping a draw on Tuesday.

  • Sunderland are winless in their last 6 matches (League One)
  • Sunderland are winless in 3 of their last 4 home matches (League One)
  • Sunderland have drawn 1-1 in 2 of their last 3 matches against Blackpool (League One)
  • Blackpool are winless in 4 of their last 5 matches (League One)
  • Blackpool are winless in their last 2 away matches (League One)

Head-to-Head


Sunderland have a 26-18 advantage against Sunderland with 18 matches drawn. 

The two sides met two weeks ago in League One. Blackpool beat Sunderland 1-0 at Bloomfield Road. 

Sunderland Form 


Sunderland drew 3-3 with Accrington Stanley on Saturday, extending their winless run in League One to six matches.

Charlie Wyke scored a brace in the first half and Accrington levelled in the second period. Max Power then scored on 83 minutes but Sunderland conceded moments later to drop further points. 

The result marked back-to-back draws in League One for Sunderland following their 2-2 draw with Hull last Wednesday.

Sunderland's consecutive draws ended a run of three straight defeats to Blackpool, Wigan and Charlton. Lee Johnson’s side are nine points off the automatic promotion places with three matches left this season. 

Sunderland Injuries & Team News


Defenders Jake Vokins, Tom Flanagan and Conor McLaughlin are all doubtful with injuries. 

Blackpool Form


Blackpool lost 1-0 at home to Shrewsbury on Saturday, their second losses in two matches. 

The Seasiders had the better chances against Shrewsbury, recording 61% possession and 11 shots but they couldn’t reply to Matthew Pennington’s second-half header.

The loss followed another 1-0 defeat away at Rochdale, leaving Neil Critchley’s side in the League One play-off places on goal difference with four fixtures remaining. 

Blackpool’s push for the play-offs has stuttered in recent weeks. They couldn’t build on recent wins over Swindon and Gillingham and are winless in four of their last five matches. 

Blackpool Injuries & Team News


Strikers Keshi Anderson and Gary Madine are ruled out through injury.

Winger CJ Hamilton is also unavailable with a long-term injury.
