The new Championship season starts on Friday, August 4th and one of the two games going off on the night sees Sunderland playing host to Bolton. This is a big opener for the Mackems who will want some kind of positive start to the new season in the second tier. After all their struggles last season at the foot of the Premier League table, this is a good chance for them to start afresh and get some new found optimism and ambition back.
They will be targeting promotion straight back up to the top flight that’s for sure and they will be hoping for a new goalscoring star to stand up after they lost Jermain Defoe over the summer to Bournemouth on a free transfer. They will fully fancy their chances of picking up three points in their season opener against Derby on Friday because they have good form going against the Rams.
Sunderland are unbeaten in their last ten games against the Rams now and they have won three of their last four on home soil against them as well (D1). So that’s some pretty solid form from the Mackems over the Rams and they are kicking off as favourites at the Stadium of Light on home soil. Derby away form wasn’t really up to scratch last season to suggest that they will have a huge impact in this.
