Championship Leaders Wolves host relegation-threatened Sunderland at the Molineux Stadium. Nunes Espirito Santo’s side will be looking to continue Sunderland’s woes and open the gap at the top of the log. Wolves have 47 points from 20 games, 4 points clear of second-placed Cardiff who travel to Reading on Monday night.
Struggling Sunderland find themselves on the wrong end of the table. Having been relegated from the Premier League last season, the Black Cats find themselves caught up in yet another relegation battle. Hopes among the supporters that the club would make a quick return to the Premier League like their city rivals Newcastle United have faded away. Chris Coleman’s side have only recorded two wins from 20 games, the latest coming as a 2-0 win against bottom placed Burton. Facing one of the strongest teams in the league, any positive result here will be an achievement to the injury-ravaged Sunderland.
