Sunderland will be looking to edge loser to automatic promotion with a win when they take on Bristol Rovers at the Memorial Stadium on at the weekend. The visitors are on a blistering run of form that sees them unbeaten in their last 11 games in all competitions, winning four of their last five games in the league. The Black Cats could only manage a draw against fourth-placed Lincoln last time out, but are still just two points off second-placed Peterborough and five off league leaders Hull, with two games in hand over the Tigers and one game in hand over the Posh.
The hosts, on the other hand, have lost their last three games in a row, after a defeat at home to Swindon in a West Country derby on Tuesday night. This leaves Joey Barton’s side struggling in the relegation zone, two points from safety having played more games than most of the teams around them.
There looks set to be more misery for the Gas when a red-hot Sunderland visit on Saturday. Charlie Wyke has been on fire in front of goal for Lee Johnson’s side as of late, scoring four goals in his last five league games. It takes his tally up to 22 for the season, the joint highest in League One.
The odds are 5/2 for Charlie Wyke to score and win with Skybet.
