History of the Sunderland v Coventry City fixture

Sunderland prepare to entertain Coventry City at Stadium Of Light on Saturday afternoon, needing to improve on a poor record between the sides. The visitors have won 1 of the 17 previous games, with the The Black Cats winning just 8.

The most recent encounter between these two sides at Stadium Of Light was two seasons ago, in March 2005, the The Black Cats carving out a narrow 1-0 victory in a Championship match.
