Sunderland will be desperate to make the most of their games in hand, with the race for promotion in League One beginning to hot up.
Jack Ross has managed to get the very best out of his players for large parts of the current campaign, but they have found themselves struggling to turn one point into three at times, which could cost them in the long run.
Interestingly, the January transfer window is on the horizon, so the club’s owner Stewart Donald will be at the heart of things as the Wearside club look to boost their promotion chances with a couple of marquee signings.
With that in mind, Donald can make a big statement by gifting Ross these TWO marquee signings in January…
Tom Eaves has established himself as one of the most prolific striker in League One this season, having produced 13 goals and two assists so far. The 26-year-old striker is an obvious aerial threat, and many of his goals for Gillingham have been scored with that part of his body.
So, with Sunderland looking for extra firepower at the pinnacle of the attack to help lighten the load on Josh Maja’s shoulders, Donald could make a big statement by signing the in-form Englishman.
Brad Potts has made all the headlines at current club Barnsley in the current campaign, as he continues to defy expectations with six goals and four assists to his name.
The central midfielder will no doubt attract interest in the January transfer window, so Sunderland will need to act quick if they are to secure his services.
He could slot right into the middle of midfield under Jack Ross, with his three main attributes being his pace, passing ability and an eagle eye for goal.
