Portsmouth are this weekends visitors at the Stadium of Light. Harry Redknapp`s men are depleted due to the Africans nations cup and Sunderland might just pull off a shock result.
Sunderland Team News:
We are without Dickson Etuhu, Carlos Edwards and Danny Higginbotham.
Dwight Yorke is back after his suspension.
Kenwyne Jones is touch and go and will face a late fitness test.
Player to watch: Kieran Richardson
He`s our main man at the minute and could be the difference between winning and losing.
