The Championships isn’t far away once again this weekend and there’s certainly some big games to look forward to.
Indeed, Leeds v Aston Villa gets off to a pretty good start on Friday night whilst Sunderland’s hosting of Reading could be a very interesting watch.
The Black Cats are looking that little bit more positive at the moment and so, with that in mind, we’ve taken a look at whether they can finally win at home…
As a Reading fan, I’m worried that Sunderland can do it.
The Black Cats’ win over Burton last weekend will have given them so much confidence and belief heading into the match – and if the Stadium of Light crown can get behind them, it could be tough for the Royals.
Reading are heading to Sunderland on the back of a couple of impressive results at the Madejski Stadium, but Coleman will have faith in his side to deliver, after a morale boosting victory over Burton Albion.
Sunderland’s home form in 2017 has been miserable, but the early signs of Coleman’s reign have been positive and there will be plenty of confidence around the Stadium of Light this weekend.
Coleman has every chance of ending Sunderland’s nightmare at the Stadium of Light.
It’s going to be a tough ask on Saturday, but I’m sure he’ll get one before the year is out.
Sunderland’s home record is abysmal and those problems aren’t just going to disappear with a new manager in charge as the players aren’t good enough.
However, Coleman will bring an organisation and spirit to the group and the fans will respond to that.
So, whilst they aren’t suddenly going to string wins together, they will improve and a much-needed home win can’t be too far away.
This is tough to call, due to Reading’s erratic results.
The Royals comfortably dispatched Barnsley last night, but could easily go on to lose 3-0 against the Black Cats on Sunday.
Coleman will eye this fixture as a winnable game, and with the new boss proving an inspiration already, perhaps this could be the home win fans have been waiting for.
