Sunderland have been excellent in recent times having secured maximum points from their last two League One fixtures, which has put them within touching distance of Barnsley in second.
The Black Cats currently have a game in hand over Barnsley so they’re in a very strong position, with many supporters already thinking about promotion to the Championship.
However, the month of March could completely change things for Jack Ross and his side as they’ll need to be at their best with games coming thick and fast.
Of course, the Black Cats shouldn’t have too much to worry about if their recent form is anything to go by, so this is what Sunderland’s dream March would look like…
JACK ROSS GETS WILL GRIGG FIRING
Sunderland announced that they had signed Will Grigg from Wigan Athletic for £4 million last month, but it’s safe to say that he’s failed to live up to expectations since rocking up at the Stadium of Light.
The Northern Ireland international has scored one goal and provided two assists in five League One appearances, which is less than acceptable as he’s not exactly boosted the Black Cats’ promotion hopes.
So, many Sunderland fans will be hoping that Jack Ross can get the best out of him this month as he could prove to be unstoppable if he starts finding his feet in front of goal.
ONE STEP CLOSER TO PROMOTION
Sunderland are set to face Barnsley on the 12 of March, which could prove to be season-defining.
Indeed, the Black Cats currently find themselves just two points behind the Tykes with a game in hand, so whoever wins the clash on the 12th could have one hand firmly on promotion.
If Sunderland manage to replicate the form that they’ve been showing in recent times then they should have no trouble in coming away from Oakwell with all three points. Of course, supporters would love nothing more than to see Jack Ross crush fellow promotion chasers Barnsley on their own patch.
