Echo Jury: Stuart Hall looks ahead to the visit of Bolton Wanderers

Have your say

BOLTON love conceding goals, so tomorrow is a great chance for the Lads to end their four-game drought.

The Trotters have plenty to play for and will certainly provide a tough test for whatever side O’Neill chooses.

Unfortunate news that Larsson and Richardson will be out for the season. Could we have seen the last of Richardson in a Sunderland shirt?

Meyler will probably get a chance in midfield with the suspension of Gardner and if Wickham is fit I think he will probably get a chance up front, in what could be a youthful team.

In Sessegnon and Bendtner we should have enough to trouble their defence and one of the weakest keepers in the league – Adam Bogdan.

This is the easiest (on paper) game we have left and a win would cement our place in the top 10. Despite looking tired and disinterested in the past few weeks, I think O’Neill in giving some of the fringe players a chance is looking to next season but also that they will have the added motivation of wanting to prove a point.

We’ll have too much for Bolton. Home win to the lads.

Prediction: Sunderland 3 Bolton 0.
