After regular keeper Jaakola, winter arrive Jinnelly ( midf.5+4) and Ogogo ( midf.25+2 3g), hosts loose another key player, midf. Upson ( m2+1 2g). Remain also unavailable def. Little ( 9+2) and Davies ( 18+1 1g).
Bristol loose on weekend against second from bottom Southend and in last 12 rounds, apart a win against Blackpool ( the only one since early December) and a draw against Fleetwood, gained points only against bottom table teams Bolton and Tranmere.
Sunderland without wins in last three, but played with stronger teams then Bristol, guests remain in full race for direct promotion and before the stop had a long run of positive results, only relevant miss is winter arrive Wright ( def.5), while Leadbitter ( midf.11+3) remain out since January.
Bristol didn't score in three of last five rounds and guests have one the best away defense in league, also if odds are a bit low, I am confident Sunderland can return to win after a bad brief period.
