Saturday, November 17, starting at 15:00, Sunderland will meet Wycombe in the 18th round of League One.
After surprisingly relegating from the Championship, Sunderland does not even intend to promote this season in League One. So far, things are good for Jack Ross’s second place with a total of 35 points, 3 longs away from Portsmouth leader who has a more played match. It is worth noting that Sunderland comes after 5 consecutive League One victories, and 19-year-old striker J. Maja is in an extraordinary shape managing to score 9 times this season.
The guest band played in League Two at the end of last season and certainly the goal for this season is to avoid relegation. For the time being, Wycombe is on the 15th place with a total of 21 points, 6 lengths over the Red Zone and 7 Top 6 points. Noteworthy is that the band led by Gareth Ainsworth comes after 4 victories in the last 6 rounds, but it is very important that all of these successes have been achieved on the ground, Wycombe gaining just 2 points in the last 5 away games.
At first glance, the host team clearly has the first chance to win. Indeed, Sunderland is in an impressive form, but Wycombe has scored in 6 of the 8 season moves and striker A. Akinfenwa (photo) can endanger the hosts’ gate because he is a very strong player.
