Sunderland have got themselves somewhat back on track with four points from their last two games following a damaging three-match losing streak. However, the fact remains that the Black Cats have won just one of their last five matches, leaving them eighth in the Championship table, two points adrift of the playoff places.

As for Birmingham, they’re four without defeat and will be smarting after throwing away a two-goal lead to draw 2-2 late on against high-flying Ipswich Town last time out. The Blues are sitting comfortably in 15th, but will want to string some results together to make an outside run at the playoffs.
