Oxford arrive on Wearside after beating Lincoln City last weekend, something Sunderland were unable to do two weeks ago. The U’s will be after 3 points which could potentially fire them into the playoff places and The Black Cats are hoping to extend their unbeaten run to 12.
On Saturday, Sunderland won yet another game of football. This time against Joey Barton’s Bristol Rovers. Aiden O’Brien’s first half goal from a corner was the difference between the sides. Here are the 2 Good and 1 Bad from the game.
The Black Cats make the trip to the Memorial Stadium this weekend to play relegation threatened Bristol Rovers. After a disappointing draw where the Lads failed to take advantage of our promotion rivals slipping up, they have another opportunity to pile the pressure on second placed Peterborough who were soundly beaten by Blackpool on Tuesday night.
Sunderland make the trip to Lancashire to play Accrington Stanley at the Wham Stadium (fantastic name) for the first time this season.

Very Specific Predictions - result, goal-scorers and minutes of goals, yellow cards...
Sunderland head to Wembley for the third time in three years with the hope of actually winning a game at the national stadium. First it was Pompey who spoiled the party and then it was Charlton, scoring the winner in injury time to ensure a second season in League One for Sunderland.
Sunderland head to Fratton Park on Tuesday night for yet another fixture of the rivalry which isn’t really a rivalry. Pompey are in crisis and Sunderland are on a barnstorming run of form, who’s going to come away with all the points in the race for promotion?
Sunderland host Rochdale on Wearside this afternoon following their 1-0 win against Swindon on Tuesday. Can Lee Johnson’s side continue their excellent run of form against the Greater Manchester club?
