It’s been a couple of days since the game kicked off in Wigan and I’m still not over the disappointment I felt when the referee blew the final whistle; All of that effort, the monumental job that these players put in to give themselves the opportunity of automatic promotion from this league and they falter when it comes to the crunch.

Sunderland travel to the Weston Homes Stadium to play on one of the shabbiest pitches in the league. Both sides are chasing automatic promotion and many are viewing this fixture as a 6 pointer.
