What Tony Mowbray said about Chris Wilder's Middlesbrough sacking, Ellis Simms injury and Edouard Michut

It’s a quick turnaround for Sunderland as they prepare to face Blackpool at the Stadium of Light – with head coach Tony Mowbray held his pre-match press conference earlier today.

The Black Cats were held to a goalless draw with Preston last time out and are eighth in the Championship table ahead of Tuesday’s match against the Tangerines.

Sunderland are still dealing with multiple injury setbacks, with strikers Ross Stewart and Ellis Simms both sidelined.
