BBC Sport - Dick Advocaat & John Carver ready for important Wear-Tyne derby
Advocaat & Carver ready for derby day
- From the section Football
Sunderland boss Dick Advocaat and Newcastle manager John Carver discuss the importance of this weekend's Wear-Tyne derby for both teams.
The Magpies are in the stronger position of the two, safely in mid-table, while the Black Cats sit just one point and one place above the relegation zone.
Sunderland have history on their side, however, having won the last four league meetings, a sequence the Magpies are desperate to reverse.
