History of the Sunderland v Charlton Athletic fixture

Sunderland are ready to welcome Charlton Athletic to Stadium Of Light on Saturday afternoon, looking to continue an impressive record. The Black Cats are clearly on top, having won 19 and lost only 8 of the 36 games.

The previous match played between the two at Stadium Of Light was within the last three years, in February 2003, as the visitors ran out cosy 1-3 winners in a Premiership match.
