Lee Johnson’s side come into the game following a five goal triumph over Morecambe on Tuesday night.

Goals from Ross Stewart, Alex Pritchard, Leon Dajaku and a brace from Nathan Broadhead secured a great win for the Black Cats - a win which lifted them into third place overnight.

Next up is Plymouth Argyle who this week have been hit with a bombshell following the departure of manager Ryan Lowe to Preston North End.
