Didier Ndong in action for Sunderland earlier this season

Sunderland go into this game as massive underdogs and many fans and neutrals will be thinking Sunderland need to just keep the score as low as possible.

After the win against Burton Albion, many Sunderland fans may have felt their season could now be looking better.

However, basic mistakes reminded them why they are where they are in the league once again.

Wolves have the most points and most goals scored at this point in the season than any other team in the Championship.

This won’t give Sunderland fans much hope heading into the game on Saturday, although nobody will be expecting The Black Cats to get anything from the game.

This may end up suiting Sunderland as they can go and play with no pressure on themselves for once as expectations are low.

Sunderland have been without key players Billy Jones and Didier N’dong in recent weeks and the latter has certainly been missed.

This won’t change this week either as Chris Coleman has confirmed that Bryan Oviedo, Paddy McNair, Jones and N’dong are ruled out for the weekend.

Coleman has had some time to work with the team now and the defence does look a lot better, as they have already kept more clean sheets than under Simon Grayson.

However, they will have to be at their best, and better to get anything against an impressive Wolves side who could well do a good job in the Premier League.

Many Sunderland fans will be content if the scoreline is as low as 2-0 to Wolves and then they can focus on getting a much-needed win against Fulham.

Because that game is the last chance they have to win at home before it will be 365 days since they last won at home.

Wolves have players that Sunderland fans could only currently dream about having, which is remarkable considering Wolves were 22nd this time last year.

Coleman needs to pick a team that will work hard, run for 90 minutes and will be difficult to break down.

If he tries to attack Wolves and get something out of the game it could be a long afternoon for the black cats.
