Sunderland face another home game this weekend but their might be more optimism around it than usual.
Their form in front of their own fans has been awful for some time but there appears to be renewed optimism under Chris Coleman at the moment – especially after the win over Burton.
With that in mind, then, we’re taking a look at whether Sunderland should change their line-up v Reading…
Coleman doesn’t need to change too much.
But someone like James Vaughan is knocking on the door, and him and Grabban up-front together could be useful.
But why change?
Coleman has opted to use Lewis Grabban as his lone striker so far, but after James Vaughan’s impact against Burton, we could see Sunderland searching for a way to get both into the team.
Vaughan has been disappointing since his move to the Stadium of Light, but the striker will be full of confidence following his performance at the weekend and Coleman will feel his inclusion could be a risk worth taking.
Coleman needs to find a way to get him in alongside Grabban.
No, he should keep faith with a winning team.
Having suffered for so long, the players are sure to be buzzing and they will now be relishing the chance to go out and play again this weekend.
As well as that, the side looked balanced and did their job. Coleman will be hoping for a repeat on Saturday.
The side that beat Burton looked the most confident Black Cats side of the season, and it would be madness to change anything now.
Barring injuries, the same XI that dispatched the Brewers should start, although Coleman’s substitutes did play an important role in the victory.
