Sunderland travel to Plymouth Argyle on Saturday, November 3 in League One

Exactly one month ago today, Jack Ross' side earned a point against 2nd place Peterborough United despite being down to 10-men - and little fans did fans know that such performance would spark a four-game winning streak.

As a result, the Black Cats sit one point outside the top two with a game in-hand, but a win at Home Park could fire them ahead of schedule.

What time is kick-off?

Kick-off at Home Park is at 3pm on November 3, 2018.

Aiden McGeady may have a chance of forcing himself into Ross' starting 11 after coming off the bench to score in last week's win at home to Southend United.

Plymouth will look to top goalscorer Freddie Ladapo in a bid to earn victory while Graham Carey is looking to add to his four assists this season.

The Pilgrims are likely to rely on the back four Conor Grant, Niall Canavan, Yann Songo'o and Tafari Moore to to keep League One's second top scorers at bay.

What is the form of Plymouth and Sunderland?

The Black Cats' only defeat this season came on the road at Burton Albion and since then, Ross' side have collected 17 points from a possible 21.

After a disastrous start to the season with just two points from 10 games, Derek Adams' side are beginning to fight back having won three of their last five games.

Securing emphatic wins over Gillingham and Scunthorpe United in their last two outings, Plymouth are sixth in the form table but a point off League One safety.

What are the odds?

Plymouth are priced at 29/10 to beat the Black Cats while 13/5 says it will be a draw.

Sunderland are the favourites to win at a mere 10/11 shot.
