Struggling Sunderland need to turn their form around fast as they head to London on Saturday to face relegation-threatened AFC Wimbledon. After sacking Lee Johnson following their 6-0 thumping at Bolton, it went from bad to worse for Sunderland, with two 2-1 defeats at home to first Doncaster, and then away to Cheltenham.
With only one win in their last seven, the Black Cats’ form looks more of that of a team fighting relegation and not one trying to achieve promotion. Wimbledon, like Sunderland, know what a bad run of form is like having not won one of their last 11 league games.
Mark Robinson’s side’s home form is in fact the joint worst in the league, winning just two at Plough Lane all season. Having never won a game against Sunderland, Wimbledon will find it hard to stop their rotten run here.
