Sunderland will be looking to continue their strong start to the season on Saturday afternoon, when they make the trip to Highbury to face Fleetwood Town.

Having taken 15 points from their opening six league games, Lee Johnson’s side go into the game top of the League One table, having won their last four games in all competitions.

Feetwood meanwhile, go into the game unbeaten in their last four in all competitions, and sit 17th with seven points to their name, having claimed an eye-catching 4-2 win at promotion hopefuls Rotherham United last time out.

Perhaps with that in mind, Johnson has named a Sunderland side that shows just one change from the one that beat Accrington 2-1 last time out, as Bailey Wright replaces Tom Flanagan in the centre of defence.
