Sunderland vs Leicester Under 21s and Gillingham: welcome cup excitement or just more distraction?

Lei CUP (1)

A third season for Sunderland in League One seems unthinkable. If failure to win promotion last season was a failure, as the owners and then manager Jack Ross admitted would be the case, another stumble would be hard to bear. Phil Parkinson, working with his inherited squad, has had a patchy start as Ross’s successor, […]

Wycombe Wanderers vs Sunderland: a good one to win from ninth place

Click on the image above, post your scoreline prediction and - whoever you support - you may win a prize

At first glance, the League one table makes for depressing perusal. Sunderland and down to ninth and are now eight points behind the convincing leaders, Ipswich Town, with no games in hand.
