Sunderland manager Jack Ross.

Most fans agree the Black Cats manager has made the right call, sticking with the same starting XI which defeated Rochdale 4-1 last weekend.

There were some calls for Max Power to be recalled following his three-match suspension, but the midfielder will start on a strong-looking substitutes bench, alongside Bryan Oviedo, Aiden McGeady and Jerome Sinclair.

@WERGHJIGgJ: Best Bench in the history of league 1

@LdoubleE_87: Strong bench that like #SAFC

@KevinBridges82: Keeping a winning side seems sensible. Hoping Mcgeady will get another cameo in the second half again.

@AnthonyMorrow83: Played so well last game, I'm not surprised. Shows there's real competition for places too - Power has to do his bit to get back in there.

@NyronLadSAFC: That bench is mental

@tmalbrghtn: Power for McGeough would have been my only call

@KingstonSi: No surprise Power is on the bench. Probably ease him in after being out for three matches and Ross not wanting to change a winning side.#SAFC

@chrispaul199: Haway the lads nice to see a unchanged team bring home 3 points #HawayTheLads enjoy our amazing 5'000 supporters #SAFC

@Bodders444: Power should be starting for me ... #safc

@AlanMould: Loyalty for a good result last time out, can't argue. Expect Power to make an appearance at some time though.
