Black Cats have been conceding goals on the regular and Jack Ross will have to work on that despite a positive streak early on, as they’re up against a strong challenge at Stadium of Light on the day. They’ll be well aware consistency in front of the home crowd will come crucial and showing their character comes as a must!

Scunthorpe have seen a mid-week League Cup loss of their own where Doncaster Rovers ended their two-game unbeaten streak with a 1-2 upset. Nick Daws’ men have beaten Coventry on the road beforehand, though, and there will be no love lost here either – as they look to secure another return to the winning ways away from home.

Sunderland vs Scunthorpe: Head-to-head

  • Interestingly, this will be the sides’ first competitive head-to-head clash ever.
  • They’ve met just once beforehand, sharing the spoils in a goalless friendly back in July 2017.
  • Sunderland do come off as favourites to secure the points on the day.

Sunderland vs Scunthorpe: Prediction

We will back the Black Cats to justify such a role and build on their League One performances early on, as we go for a Home win at 1.83.

They have been solid up front and we do feel they have what it takes to turn the contest their way despite a strong challenge.

With that in mind, we do see Scunthorpe making it on the scoresheet as well and we’ll thus also back a YES on Both teams to score, which comes at 1.95 and has attracted many value seekers already.

We’ve seen both sides regularly scoring and conceding recently and this could be further evidence for such a bet!
