Is every game for Sunderland a six pointer? This one certainly is as bottom take on second from bottom in the league.

Match Facts & Stats

Sunderland are 20th with 5 points and could rise to 19th if they beat Birmingham who are 19th with 6 points.

Match Prediction:

Draw. I just can't see either team coming out winners as neither team seem able to score.
