Derby V Sunderland

Sunderland travel to Pride Park for their must win game against Derby County.

The game against Derby will be Sunderland`s best chance of winning their first away game this season.

Derby Team News:

Derby are without Giles Barnes, Claude Davis and Tyrone Mears

However Dean Leacock faces a late fitness test on his hip problem

Player to watch: Kenny Miller

He is always a handful and probably Derby`s only quality forward.

Sunderland Team News:

Roy Keane is still without Carlos Edwards and Danny Collins.

Edwards is still recovering from a broken leg and Collins is suspended.

Danny Higginbotham, Liam Miller and Kieran Richardson are all back in contention after recovering from their respective injuries.

Player to watch: Andy Reid

He might look like he is carrying some extra weight but their nothing wrong with the weight of his passes should be a live wire from the off.

Match Facts & Stats

Ref Watch:

Mike Riley

Match Prediction:

I`ll have to go for a 0-1 away win.
