Sunderland v Fulham: Will it be a black day for the Black Cats?


Bookmark and Share

Sunderland won only their second league game of the season at Craven Cottage as they beat Fulham 3-1. Today they host Martin Jol's side looking to take six points out of six against them, but the visitors will be looking to win their first away game since beating West Brom on New Year's Day.

February proved to be an awful month for the Black Cats as they lost all three matches and have been sucked back into the relegation picture. Although they start the day five points clear of the drop zone, the likes of Wigan, Aston Villa and Reading are all fighting for their lives and more than capable of getting another three points under their belts.

Fulham have been an inconsistent performer this season, particularly over the past 10 games where they have lost four and won three. They would have taken heart from their performance and result against Stoke last weekend, and their record at Sunderland is not to be sniffed at. They have lost there only twice in eight visits.

You have to go back to 1988 for the last time Sunderland did the double over Fulham, but they won't get a better opportunity than this to end that record.

This game could really go either way but where do our pundits see the points heading?
