Match day preview.

Away tonight at Sunderland and big respect to any Blues making the trip up tonight in what should hopefully be a succesful quest for three points and the possibility of topping the table.
Despite winning the Championship last season, on paper Sunderland look to be the least equipped of the promoted sides to stay up this season, and their current Premiership losing streak now stands at sixteen. They appear to have somewhat low with their summer acquisitions such as the Jon Stead and Alan Stubbs.
City will no doubt travel buoyed by the win at at Birmingham and I imagine an unchanged line-up although we may not see the Blues line-up in yellow this time round. Hopefully the David James and the defence continue with their solid start and strikers look to build on their promising early season form.
Prediction: Sunderland 0 City 2 with a possibility of Darius Vassell opening his City account.
