Derby are Sunderland`s visitors at Stadium of Light this weekend. Sunderland are expecting a near full house for this important game which is already being billed as a must win game for Roy Keane`s side. Derby on the other hand are bedding in a new manager Paul Jewell after the dismissal of Billy Davies last week.
Sunderland Team News:
We are without Nyron Nosworty, Kieran Richardson, Stanislav Varga and Russell Anderson
Player to watch: Craig Gordon
Our goalkeeper is due a good game and they don`t come much bigger than this one. Expect him to keep a clean sheet.
Derby Team News:
Paul Jewell has a full squad to pick from with Andy Todd his only doubt.
Player to watch: Kenny Miller
Without a doubt Derby`s best player hopefully Higginbotham will have him in his back pocket.
