Sunderland V Boro

Our friends the Smoggies are the visitors to the Stadium of Light this weekend. The two Northeast rivals need to win with the winner of this derby also securing their premiership status for next season.

The game will see Julio Arca return to the SOL for the first time since joining Boro for 1.75m.

Sunderland Team News:

Roy Keane is expected to ring the changes after last weekend`s horror show against Newcastle.

Russ Wallace could make his first appearance since January after scoring three for the reserves.

Sunderland are without Dickson Etuhu (Knee), Darren Ward (Back) and Bardsley (Cartilage).

Jonny Evans (Hamstring) and Dwight Yorke (Knee) could return but both are rated 50-50.

Player to watch: Kieran Richardson

After starting on the bench last weekend, Kieran will be out to impress.

Boro Team News:

Goalkeepers Mark Schwarzer (Back) and Russ Turnbull (Back) are rated 50-50 to be fit.

Boro are without O`Neil (Knee Ligament), Mido (Groin), Jones (Wrist) and Huth (Ankle).

Our favourite Argentinean returns to the SOL for the first time since joining Boro. Hope he has a stinker!
