Lads Held in Dour Draw

Lads Held in Dour Draw

Sunderland had to settle for a 0-0 draw at Craven Cottage this afternoon as we couldn't quite break down a stubborn Fulham.

Two changes before the game as David Meyler started his first game for over 6 months in place of Asamoah Gyan, who had to settle for a place on the bench. Simon Mignolet played in place of Craig Gordon.

The first half started with Fulham doing all the running but Sunderland came in to the game a lot more and bossed posession for the most part. Anton Ferdinand had to be subbed minutes into the game with a hamstring pull and Elmohamady moved to right back, allowing Nedum Onuoha to move inside with Mensah. The away sides midfield was breaking up play well but the pass to Bent or Welbeck up front was continually poor. Half chances were all we had to show for a decent half.

The forward play improved in the second half, but so did Fulhams. The home sides balls in to the box were excellent at times and the best chance came when a scramble in the box ended with a good save from Mignolet.

Immediately, Sunderland countered and Darren Bent's pass for Gyan, on in the 2nd half, was too long and a good chance went begging.

All in all, a decent point but maybe an opportunity missed for three points against a below par Fulham team.

Final Score: 0-0

Star Men:

***Henderson
**Mensah
*Onuoha

Black Cats Take On The Baggies

Sunderland go into this game still looking for their first Premiership win of the season, and things are about to get physical.

Tony Pulis is renowned for building sides that are hard to beat, when he was at Stoke he arguably had one of the best defences in the top flight, they didn't play pretty football but they were a tight knit bunch of players who would give most sides a game they knew they had been in.

At West Brom, Pulis still has his knockers who wish that the football was
