Stadium of Light
This could be the most important fixture in our recent history. A win will move us back up the right end of the league, a loss is just simply unthinkable.
Sunderland have now gone nine games without picking up three points and now find themselves only five points from safety. Steve Bruce is under mounting pressure from the fans and he must deliver a win today or face a fiesty backlash at the full-time whistle.
We need everyone inside the Stadium of Light to back the lads and encourage them at every moment we have possession.
Ha'way the lads!
'I still think if we can win on Saturday then we've got an outstanding chance of finishing in the top 10.'
Sunderland have been rocked by long term injuries to Campbell and Gordon and also have doubts over Richardson, Muntari, Welbeck and Ferdinand.
Steed Malbranque should start but it will be interesting to see who is fit for this massive game
It is time for Gyan to show his worth. He has had a good opening season in England but when we need him the most is today.
He needs service but he also needs to improve as his last game was his worst.
Transfer target Figueroa will not be playing due to serving a suspension but otherwise Wigan are full strength.
The player who we have been chasing forever it seems. He will be the main threat and looking to show Bruce exactly why he rates him so highly.
We stop him, we stop the threat of conceding.
This will be Steve Bruce's 500th league match as a manager (W179, D130, L190).
Sunderland have won only one of the nine Premier League meetings between the two teams.
Referee: Lee Probert Assistant referees: Andy Halliday & David Richardson Fourth official: Mark Halsey
Sunderland 2-1 Wigan Gyan to score first but we cannot afford to go behind as we never turn things around from a losing position.
Fulham come for yet another massive home game for Steve Bruce next weekend.
