Sunderland will be looking to continue on from where they left off this Saturday as they play host to Charlton Athletic in Sky Bet League One.
The Black Cats ran out as resounding 4-0 winners on Tuesday night away to Crewe Alexandra at Gresty Road, with goals from Ross Stewart (2) and Leon Dajaku alongside a Terell Thomas own goal earning them a welcome victory on the road.
That result will certainly stand them in good stead for this weekend’s clash against manager-less Charlton, who sacked Nigel Adkins yesterday following a disastrous start to their own league campaign.
With that in mind, Lee Johnson and his players will almost certainly be looking to inflict more misery on their visitors from South London as they gear up for this home clash.
Here, we take you through the latest Sunderland team news ahead of their game against Charlton Athletic tomorrow.
Lynden Gooch is said to be closing in on a return, although it is expected that Saturday could come too soon for the midfielder.
Did these 25 Sunderland transfers actually happen?
Nathan Broadhead and Corry Evans also remain to be massive doubts, which means the Black Cats could be short in some key areas for this game.
Alex Pritchard went off in the win over Crewe and will have his injury assessed, whilst Elliot Embleton is set to serve the second match of his three game suspension after being sent off against Gillingham.
There is therefore plenty of scope for other players to make a claim towards nailing down a spot in the starting eleven moving forwards.
Despite their numerous absentees, many will expect Sunderland to pick up yet another victory, particularly as Charlton are in a somewhat rudderless state after dispensing of Adkins.
Nevertheless it promises to be yet another fascinating encounter between these two sides as they lock horns once again tomorrow.
