EFLTheOther72 added: “Looks very unbalanced. Good to see the trio of Maguire, Onien and Power all starting. Played big roles last season for Sunderland #SAFC”

Sunderland face Stanley tonight at the Wham Stadium and then Portsmouth at home on Saturday in the lunchtime kick-off, with SAFC desperate for some momentum heading into that game.

They have started the season with two 1-1 draws to heap pressure on manager Jack Ross, who is in his second season in charge at the Stadium of Light.
