Win tickets to Saturday's match at the SoL

We have a pair of tickets to give away to Saturday’s match, which kicks off at the Stadium of Light at 3pm.

The stats are in Sunderland’s favour - and they could really do with their form over City continuing this weekend.

In fact, you have to go back almost 24 years to the day since the Robins last defeated Sunderland, when they gained a 2-0 victory on October 30, 1993.

Since then, the two teams have met on five further occasions, with the Black Cats winning twice and it ending in stalemate three times. The last time the sides met was on February 13, 1999 at Ashton Gate when a penalty from Kevin Phillips gave Sunderland a 1-0 win on their way to winning the First Division with 105 points.
