Sunderland are set to face Bristol City this weekend in their second match since they returned to the Championship.

The Robins boss Nigel Pearson has spoken on the Black Cats ahead of the clash.

He said: “They’ll have been disappointed not to hold on for a win but I though that overall Coventry certainly from the second half deserved to get something out of the game.

“What bearing that has on our game I don’t know, I’m really thinking about how we get our players to get the performance right. “Teams that get promoted from League One have the added buoyancy and confidence, so I would expect it to be a tough game.

“Alex has had some success as well in terms of promotions and setting up sides that are difficult to play against. I don’t expect an easy game, put it that way.”
