Pulis Expecting It Tough Against Sunderland
Sunderland have had a rough time of it lately, they are slipping evermore closer to the Championship and last weekend they were dumped out of the FA Cup by league one side Bradford.

Sunderland's slump has seen them win just once in the last eight and they are just two points above the relegation places.
West Brom on the other hand are turning their season around since Pulis took over in January.
But the former Stoke boss is wary of Sunderland and has warned his players to expect a hard time on the pitch this Saturday. He is taking nothing for granted.
He told reporters: 'We have watched them on two or three occasions.
'We watched the QPR game and in the second half they could have scored two or three goals. They had a sloppy first half then Gus looked at that. They really pulled it together and if they had got the breaks the could have easily got a result.
'They are not far short of getting results. I have tremendous respect for Gus and that football club, so we will be prepared for what will be a tough battle.'
