‘Continue our tradition of not winning in August’ – Sunderland fans left underwhelmed

Published

on

Sunderland, preparing for their first season in the second-tier for the best part of a decade, have discovered their fixtures ahead of the 2017/18 Championship campaign. 

The Black Cats kick-off their year on Friday 4th August under the floodlights against Gary Rowett’s Derby County and play three successive away games prior to welcoming potential promotion chasers Leeds United.

Without a manager as of yet, the club can look forward to a local rivalry encounter against fellow relegated outfit Middlesbrough at Riverside in early November, the reverse fixture being played at home three months after that.

They suffer a game on the road to promoted Sheffield United on Boxing Day and that is followed by a dreadful trip fairly south to Mark Warburton’s Nottingham Forest.

Sunderland end the 2017/18 season hosting Wolverhampton Wanderers at the Stadium of Light.

Here is how the fans reacted to their fixture list following the release early on Wednesday morning….
