Footymad preview History of the Sunderland v Wolverhampton Wanderers fixture

Sunderland prepare to entertain Wolverhampton Wanderers at The Stadium of Light at lunchtime on Saturday, looking to continue an impressive record. The The Black Cats are clearly on top, having won 32 and lost only 10 of the 58 games.

The most recent encounter between these two sides at The Stadium of Light was just last season, in September 2009, when they eased past their opponents in a high-scoring 5-2 thriller, in a Premier League match.

Recent respective form guides

Sunderland's woeful home form means they have chalked up just a single victory, with 5 defeats, from the last six. While The Black Cats have scored 9, a worringly large 16 have been leaked at the other end.

Wolverhampton Wanderers's away form is none too clever either, seeing them win just 1 and draw 2 of the last six. While the Wolves have hit 4 goals, 11 have hit the back of the wrong net.

Sunderland see themselves just below half way in the Barclays Premier League, showing a record of 44 points from their 36 games played so far,

Wolverhampton Wanderers are hovering perilously just above the relegation zone, with 37 points from 36 matches.

FootyMad's prediction ...

Its been a distinctly poor show from Sunderland at home in recent games, and, though we cannot see a run starting here, we do think the The Black Cats will at least gain a draw. No-score draw
