Hull City Guess the Score: is Father Marc seeking new papal miracle?

Jake: 'Monsieur Salut must be in a bad mood again - no prize this time'

Salut! Sunderland never had its star illustrator Jake down as the sort to believe in the power of prayer.

SAFC v Peterborough United: a non-revolutionary, post-PDC Guess the Score

Srirtign before the sacking, Jake said: 'If it goes tits up against this mob I reckon Paolo may find himself wearing a concrete overcoat..'
