Sunderland will be looking to halt their losing run when they travel to Doncaster Rovers for their League One clash on Saturday.
Pressure appears to be building on Black Cats boss Phil Parkinson, whose side followed up their shock FA Cup exit to Mansfield last weekend with a midweek EFL Trophy defeat to Fleetwood, before suffering a third straight loss to MK Dons in the league on Saturday.
The weekend setback against the Dons saw Sunderland slip outside of the top-six, and their league position could worsen further with two difficult away in the pipeline.
Sunderland follow their trip to Donny with with another visit to Highbury, less than three weeks after Parkinson’s men were beaten there in the EFL Trophy.

Let's be honest here, let's not keep our hopes up regards getting much here, unless of course we use the pace we have oozing through the team and get decent balls into the free scoring strikers we also have

Might get about 4 points if Parky is in charge.
