Sunderland v Swansea City: Can the Swans shine at the Stadium of Light?


Bookmark and Share

Swansea City are looking forward to a day out at Wembley in the Capital One Cup final, but can Michael Laudrup keep their feet on the ground as they travel to Sunderland this evening?

The Black Cats have hit form, scoring three times against both West Ham and Wigan to move to within five points of Swansea in ninth place. So much for being in a relegation battle, Sunderland fans are now dreaming of a late push for Europe.

Swansea City haven't won on Sunderland soil since 1982 when the famous Roker Roar could be heard on Wearside. But this Swansea City side are blessed with skill, pace, movement and creativity. They played Chelsea over two legs in the Capital One cup and failed to concede a single goal too, that is what you call resolute defending. Unfortunately they will have to make do without a time-wasting ball boy!

Sunderland have lost and won four times at home this season, the same number that Swansea have won away. Will this end as a draw?

Sunderland v Swansea City; Kick Off 3pm January 29 2013
