Sunderland to win it

We begin our tips for this game by backing Sunderland to get the win. The Black Cats have only lost one of their last five matches winning two and drawing two in that period. That's not ‘home banker' form in its own right, however, you need to consider Blackpool's form too; they've lost each of their last three and four of their past five. That swings the pendulum firmly in Sunderland's favour and the fact they beat Blackpool in the last clash between the pair clinches it; With all that considered, we're sure that backing Sunderland to win is the way to go here!

Someone will fail to score

The next prediction we bring you for this game is that both teams will not score in this match – and the stats back up our thoughts fairly conclusively as well. Sunderland, who are fresh off the back of a 0-0 draw with Preston, have seen four of their past five games end with at least one side blanking in front of goal. Blackpool meanwhile have also seen four of their past five games end with a ‘nil' in the final scoreline. For good measure, you can throw in the head to head record; two of the last three meetings between these sides have seen someone fail to score.

Can Sunderland continue their strong start?

These two sides are experiencing quite a variance in their form right now with Sunderland having lost just one in five compared to Blackpool who have won just one in five. That's reflected in the league table too with Sunderland pushing for the top six and Blackpool getting dangerously close to the drop zone. What does it mean for this game? That both teams need the three points – that's what!

Sunderland arrive into this match with a handful of players out injured including Ellis Simms, Dennis Cirkin and Dan Ballard. Their most important absentee though is probably Ross Stewart.

Sunderland Predicted lineup – Patterson, Gooch, O'Nien, Batth, Alese, Roberts, Clarke, Neil, Pritchard, Embleton

Blackpool are in a poor run of form right now and a few injury concerns aren't going to help them here either. Keshi Anderson and Lewis Fiorini – amongst a couple of others – are out injured.

Blackpool Predicted lineup – Maxwell, Gabriel, Thompson, Thorniley, Ekipteta, Wright, Patino, Dougall, Yates, Poveda, Corbeanu
