Today's Betting Tips for Blackpool vs Sunderland

Sunderland are chasing their third victory on the spin when they visit relegation candidates Blackpool in the Championship on Sunday. Read our top predictions for this weekend’s fixture below.

Sunderland to Win

Sunderland moved up to fourth spot in the Championship thanks to their fine 4-1 win at Wigan on Thursday evening and the red-hot Black Cats look ready to push for more points when they visit struggling Blackpool on Sunday. The hosts are still in second last place following their reverse at home to Sheffield United last time out and Blackpool could struggle to match Sunderland’s increasingly powerful wave of momentum. As a result, bettors are advised to back the visitors to win for the third time in a row.

Ross Stewart to Score Anytime

Ross Stewart’s return to fitness has been a major boost to Sunderland’s promotion push and the Scottish striker managed to notch in each of his last three appearances for the Black Cats. The 26-year-old has scored 32 times in his last 57 league runouts for Sunderland overall since his switch from Ross County and Stewart is playing with enough of a swagger to bolster his already impressive numbers even further with another goal at Blackpool on Sunday.

Blackpool vs Sunderland Team News & Injuries

Read all of the latest injury updates and team news for Sunday’s Championship tussle between Blackpool and Sunderland below.

Blackpool

Keeper Chris Maxwell is still out with a groin injury while defender Jordan Lawrence-Gabriel is unavailable with a knee complaint. In midfield, Blackpool could be without Liam Bridcutt, Lewis Fiorini, Keshi Anderson and Kevin Stewart while attacker Theo Corbeanu is absent in the final third.

Predicted Lineup for Blackpool: Grimshaw – Connolly, Ekpiteta, Husband, Thompson – Carey, Patino, Poveda-Ocampo, Beesley – Yates, Madine

Sunderland

Aji Alese and Danny Batth are both out at the back for Sunderland while midfielders Dennis Cirkin, Lynden Gooch and Elliot Embleton are also in the treatment room at present. Sunderland rinsed Wigan 4-1 to move up to fourth spot in the Championship in midweek.

Predicted Lineup for Sunderland: Patterson – Ballard, Wright, O'Nien – Michut, Neil, Hume, Clarke – Diallo, Ba, Simms

Player to Watch – Amad Diallo

Ivorian winger Amad Diallo has been on flames in the Championship in recent weeks and the 20-year-old had fans on the edge of their seats again in midweek with another excellent showing at Wigan. Diallo capped his display with a screamer from distance and the youngster – who is on loan at Sunderland from Manchester United – could make another match-defining impact against Blackpool.
