Sunderland fans have endured a dismal couple of seasons as the club dropped two divisions in the space of two years but things are starting to look up.
Jack Ross’ side currently sit 3rd in the League 1 table and have only lost one of their opening 12 matches- a statistic that will certainly please the Sunderland boss.
