Sunderland will be desperate to work their way into the automatic promotion places later on today, with a game in hand over the top two.
The Black Cats haven’t been able to enjoy a winning streak in recent times as they’ve struggled to make the most of promising positions in League One fixtures.
However, they’ll welcome promotion rivals Luton Town to the Stadium of Light in their next League One fixture. The Hatters have just lost long-term manager Nathan Jones, so they’ll be rather fragile as they head into today’s game.
Therefore, Sunderland can climb into the promotion places and add to Luton’s woes if Ross calls upon this DUO…
Charlie Wyke is slowly working his way back into proceedings after suffering from a long-term injury. He has two goals to his name in eight appearances for the Black Cats.
The forward managed to find the back of the net against Newcastle United’s Under-21 side last time out and impressed against Charlton Athletic, so he more than deserves a starting place in today’s crucial clash.
Sunderland secured the services of Max Power on a permanent deal recently, after witnessing his impressive performances in the side during the first half of the current campaign.
The central midfielder has been an absolute rock for the Black Cats this season, as he works tirelessly to break up play and links defence to attack.
Luton Town are one of the most dangerous attacking sides in League One, so Power will be tasked with stopping the likes of Elliot Lee and James Collins from advancing.
