  1. A must win for Sunderland?

    "They're not intending to, but mid-table, safe as houses West Brom are playing a big part in the scrap to stay up.

    "The Baggies' only two defeats in their last eight league games have been 1-0 to Norwich and Newcastle, and with it looking like two from three joining Aston Villa down the ladder (notwithstanding Crystal Palace making it look more like a greasy pole!), it is imperative that Sunderland beat them too.

    "I wince when I hear those involved say 'must-win' in case it doesn't happen, but Jack Rodwell went there this week - incredibly having never been on a winning side in the 25 league games he's started for Sunderland.

    "Sunderland to triumph 1-0 with a Rodwell winner, anyone?"

  2. Team news

  5. Squeaky bum time

    It's that time of the season. Things are getting seriously tight for Sunderland, who are in 18th place, two points from safety, with eight games left.

    They'll be targeting at least four wins - can they get one of them against West Brom?
