A draw but is it good enough for either?

A point in this game won't do Sunderland any harm despite the fact they've not won any of their last six games; they're not making the top two and they're not dropping out of the top six either. For Blackpool it's completely feasible that they miss out on the playoffs despite their recent unbeaten run, which is well and truly forgotten about after losing two very winnable games. With neither side in amazing form a share of the spoils seems like a likely outcome; it's also what has happened the last two times these sides have met at the Stadium of Light.

A low scoring match

Sunderland's last two matches have seen 10 goals but don't call the shrinks just yet. There is a method to our madness with this prediction of under 2.5 goals. Blackpool have failed to score in three of their last five games with

Charlie Wyke to keep amongst the goals

Although we don’t think this match will serve up a profound number of goals we still expect there to be some. After all, Sunderland have the fourth best attack in the league. A major part of that is 25 goal striker Wyke. The 28-year-old is a man going through a good spell too; he has notched three goals in his last four outings so won’t be shy of gobbling up any chances that fall his way.

A tie as both battle for their top of the table targets

Sunderland look good value to remain in the top six despite their recent woes. Blackpool by contrast had been on a frankly terrific run until recently and could miss out. As they say, it's a funny old game! Anyway, forget the form they're in right now, if either side plan on winning the playoffs – if they should make them – then they'll need to buck their ideas up. To do that, they need to start winning games!
