The big games keep on coming in Sky Bet League One at the moment with Sunderland taking on Ipswich Town this weekend at the Stadium of Light.
The race for promotion in the third tier is looking as tight as ever with several good sides up there from the start of the campaign and others joining the fray as we’ve gone along.
Both Sunderland and Ipswich, then, have the ability to go up this season and this weekend, therefore, is going to be pivotal in the race.
With Sunderland losing to Portsmouth last time out they’ll be looking to bounce back, too, whilst Phil Parkinson will be looking to get his side back to the form that saw him earn this award:
A man that has turned his fortunes around at the club, let’s take a look at the reaction to this news on social media:
Fair play to the bloke like. Had everyone screaming for his head (me included) but he's slowly turning it around. Keep it up and come the end of the season we'll see if he managed to get that extra 15% he was brought in to get out of the players

Fair play! We’ve had a good month after the tough start he had. Hopefully, we can bounce back from Portsmouth, tomorrow.

Well done Parky well deserved, tough baptism to @safc. Any chance you could pull off a hattrick for us?
