How Sunderland’s staggering Championship attendances this season compares with Sheffield United, Middlesbrough & Co

Sunderland have recorded back-to-back goalless draws at the Stadium of Light.

Despite these shutouts against Preston North End and Blackpool, the Black Cats are still being roared on by an average attendance of over 38,000 at home this season as Tony Mowbray's side navigate their way through their first season back in the Championship after a four-year absence.

A trip to south Wales is up next for Sunderland before they return to Wearside to face fellow promoted side Wigan Athletic on October 15.

In all, Cats fans have three home games to look forward to before the break for the Qatar World Cup in November.
