PREVIEW: SUNDERLAND (A)

25 November 2019

BURTON Albion take on Sunderland at the Stadium of Light on Tuesday evening (7.45pm kick-off) in our rearranged game - check out our match preview below!

Head 2 Head

THE Brewers and Sunderland have met on four occasions in league action, all over the last two campaigns in the Championship and League One.

Our most recent trip to the Stadium of Light saw an early Tom Flanagan own goal cancelled out by a Jack Baldwin header in a 1-1 draw - the first tie between the two clubs in the league.

Prior to that, goals from Darren Bent and Liam Boyce gave us a dramatic 2-1 win at the Stadium of Light in April 2018, while we have won one and lost one to the Black Cats at the Pirelli Stadium.


Burton Albion news

The Brewers have four main injury doubts for the game, with three players coming off injured in the 1-0 defeat away at Peterborough United last weekend.

Nathan Broadhead (hamstring), David Templeton (back) and Oliver Sarkic (calf) had to come off during the game, while John Brayford (calf) is also doubtful.

On-loan Chelsea centre-half Richard Nartey came through 90 minutes at the weekend.

"John Brayford is a doubt but we've got several, including the three who came off injured," said Clough.

"We'll leave them until the afternoon and see how they go. Everyone will travel and we'll assess them on the evening and see how they are.

"David Templeton got a hit and it's his back. Richard Nartey seems to have come through okay, while Stephen Quinn took a couple of whacks as well and he's the only other one."


Sunderland news

Defender Jordan Willis has been passed fit to face the Brewers, having been substituted in the Black Cats' 1-1 draw with Coventry City at the weekend with the fear being that he had aggravated a knee injury.

On-loan Reading striker Marc McNulty will miss out as he recovers from a hamstring injury, while Charlie Wyke and Lynden Gooch are ruled out with ankle injuries. 

Midfielder George Dobson will be suspended after picking up five yellow cards, but Conor McLaughlin will return from his own one-game suspension.

The assistants will be Simon Clayton and Christopher Ward, with Mark Dwyer as the fourth official.
