Sunderland vs Sheffield Wednesday
English League Championship
Date: Monday, 2nd April 2018
Kick-off at 14:00 UK/ 15:00 CET
Venue: Stadium of Light (Sunderland).

Sunderland’s time is slowly ticking away. Despite their last inspiring results the games are going one by one and the team has very little room to maneuver. The Black Cats are very much near the bottom of the table and the gap between them and safety has gone to 5 points.

Last game Sunderland made the unthinkable. They visited a strong although out of form Derby County side. The Black cats finally showed what they can do. They took a 0-2 lead going to 1-2 till the half time. Coleman’s boys were even better in the second scoring two more goals bringing the score to its final form of 1-4.

Sheffield will have to settle just to avoiding relegation. The team played in the play-offs 2 years in a row and now can hardly think even for a mid-table finish. They are 10 points above the relegation zone and recently have looked lively. But even if they continue their good performances from recent weeks the team will still finish close to where it is now.

Wednesday took a second back to back victory last round. They played top 6 candidate Preston and struck their ambitions hard. After a goalless first half Sheffield took a 2-0 lead. Preston got one back but The Owls reacted well and netted 2 more bringing the score to 4-1.
