Middlesbrough vs. Sunderland

The Riverside

22nd September 2007

15:00

Middlesbrough V Sunderland

Sunderland take the short trip to Middlesbrough for their first derby match of the season.

A last a derby we haven`t had one of them for a while, so it would be nice to win so we can have the bragging rights on Wearside.

Middlesbrough Team News:

Jeremie Aliadiere, Robert Huth and Emanual Pogatetz are out.

Player to watch: Julio Arca

Julio will be out to get one over his former employers. The Argentinean is a skilful player who is very creative and hardworking. We will have to keep him quite to get something out of the game.

Sunderland Team News:

Dean Whitehead, Carlos Edwards, Russell Anderson, Stan Varga, Andrew Cole and Kieran Richardson are all out injured.

Roy Keane is expected to name an unchanged side for the 3rd consecutive game.

Player to watch: Kenwyne Jones

After scoring his first goal for the club last weekend the Trinidad and Tobago front man will be wanting to add to his tally, who would bet against him if they seen him play against Reading.

Match Facts & Stats

Last time we took the trip to the part of Yorkshire that clean air forgot, we won 2-0 Tommy Miller scored our first. Julio Arca then scored a cracking free kick, It`s a travesty to see Arca playing for the smog monsters I hope he has a bad game.

In our last six league games at The Riverside We have Won 1, Draw 2 and Lost 3

Ref Watch:

Howard Webb

Match Prediction:

I think this will be a tight game so I will have to go for 1-1 Draw

Next Fixtures:
