Sunderland have a 62-51 advantage against Middlesbrough in 151 meetings with 38 draws.

Sunderland Form

Sunderland are unbeaten in seven of their last nine Championship matches and have won six.

The Black Cats sealed back-to-back league wins in their last two. An away win at Sheffield Wednesday (3-0) came before a 2-0 home victory over Watford on Wednesday.

Tony Mowbray’s side had 58% possession and four shots on target during the Watford win. Nial Huggins and Abdoullah Ba scored either side of half time to secure the three points.

Sunderland Injuries & Team News

Midfielders Bradley Dack, Dennis Cirkin, Pierre Ekwah, Jay Matete and Corry Evans are ruled out.

Defender Aji Alese and forward Ross Stewart are unavailable due to injury. 

Middlesbrough Form

Middlesbrough are winless in seven of their last ten Championship matches, losing five.
Boro have won their last three after victories against Southampton (2-1), Watford (3-2) and Cardiff (2-0). 

Michael Carrick’s side beat Cardiff at home last time out and controlled the match with 61% possession. Isiah Jones and Emmanuel Latte Lath struck after half time to seal the win.

Middlesbrough Injuries & Team News

Midfielder Lewis O'Brien is out. 


Sunderland have gathered winning momentum recently and Boro are unconvincing on the road. A third consecutive Black Cats league win is tipped at the Stadium of Light.
