Sunderland head south this weekend as they pitch up at Fratton Park, looking to get three points from Portsmouth in Sky Bet League One in what should be a cracking game.
Both sides are looking capable of getting themselves into the Championship come the end of the season with both hitting good form in recent weeks.
Indeed, whoever wins this weekend is going to be sky high going into the rest of the season and Black Cats fans will hope that their players are going to produce the goods.
One man that has left the club, though, is Aiden McGeady with him joining Charlton on loan until the end of this season:
The Addicks, of course, beat the Black Cats in last year’s League One playoff final and so plenty has been said about this exit on Twitter.
Let’s look at what has been said as the deadline begins to loom large:
I was all for getting rid of him but not to these man

What’s people got against Charlton? Just cause they beat us at Wembley it makes them arch rivals like Portsmouth. I for one actually like them and hope they stay up in the Championship.

Can't believe people are moaning about the team he has gone to… he wasnt going to play for us, hasn't gone to a direct rival, some wages of the book. Honestly think some fans wait for any opportunity to have a moan

Had a special ability to turn nothing into something. Cheers for the Wembley limbs and best of luck Aiden!
