As quoted by Chronicle Live, Sunderland defender Billy Jones has revealed why he thinks the club have the advantage in the relegation battle with our resident Black Cats in the Transfer Tavern hoping he is right.
The north east club are once again struggling this year and looked set for a truly miserable season after a shocking start to the campaign.
Things have slightly picked up since but they are still bottom of the table thanks to a loss at Swansea at the weekend and so a battle for survival is very much on the cards this season once again.
The Black Cats are no strangers to a relegation fight, however, and have been in and around the bottom three for the last few years.
It’s pretty tiring for our resident Sunderland fans to watch but their defender Jones thinks that it does at least offer them the edge this season, as they know exactly how to get out of it.
“I think we have quite a lot of lads who have the experience of knowing what to do to get out of trouble.”
Sunderland are currently bottom of the league and our landlord doesn’t see that changing during the upcoming mid-week fixtures with Chelsea set to visit on Wednesday night.
Does Jones have a point, Black Cats fans? Let us know below!
