Sunderland vs Rotherham Lineups, Team News, and Match Preview

Sunderland

They had a terrific last season in the Championship missing promotion by a little margin. This season, Sunderland will look to go a step further and try to return to the Premiership after some time away. There are plenty of injuries occupying the team at this time: Jay Matete, Aji Alese, Elliot Embleton, Jenson Seelt, Corry Evans, and Ross Stewart are missing with different ailments.

Provisional lineup: Patterson, Hume, Ballard, O'Nien, Cirkin, Nell, Ekwah, Roberts, Bellingham, Clarke, Dack.

Rotherham

After conceding six goals in only a couple of league matches, there is a sense of worry within the Rotherham team about the squad's lack of defending. It is something that the manager Matt Taylor needs to address rather quickly. Jamie Lindsay, Shane Ferguson, Lee Peltier, and Tom Eaves are injured while Fred Onyedinma is suspended.

Provisional lineup: Johansson, Bramall, Blackett, Humphreys, Lembikisa, Rathbone, Cafu, Odoffin, Green, Hugill, Wiles.

Player to Watch: Jobe Bellingham

If the last name is familiar to you then it is because of a good reason. Jobe Bellingham is the younger brother of Jude who recently signed for Real Madrid. Jobe is 17 years old and has been developed, just like his brother, in the Birmingham youth system. There are other similarities as well. As Jude was sold to Borussia Dortmund, the same thing happened to Jobe who was transferred to Sunderland.

Even though he is still underage, Jobe Bellingham started both of Sunderland's games in the Championship this season. However, his team is still without a win. Jobe is searching for his first goal, but with his young age, the talent is there and it is a matter of time before he breaks the goalscoring duck.
