STEVE Bruce’s grip on his job with Sunderland is precarious today.
The Black Cats’ 2-1 home loss to Wigan Athletic leaves them still only two points above the relegation zone with a third of the season gone.

Sunderland travel to Wolves - currently a place below them - on Sunday and host basement club Blackburn a week later.
Now we want your verdict on what direction Sunderland should take.
