Sunderland vs Preston
Ever problems for last on table Sunderland that obtained only three draws in last nine rounds and that has only nine matches to avoid relegation.
Respect last match - lost against QPR - Sunderland recovers def. Clarcke-Salter ( 7), but with the ban suffered in that match by keeper Steele ( 12) and with first choice Ruiter that remain longterm injuried in goal will be winter arrive Camp ( 5+1).
Camp was regular keeper for Rotherham in last two season played for that club in Championship, but in this one suffered ten goals in the five matches played from start from its new club.
Sunderland remain also without Wilson ( def. 14), Gibson ( midf. 12+3), Browning ( def. 26+2 2g) and Watmore ( midf.4+2), while Williams ( midf.7+5 1g) is another new missing and O'Shea ( def. 26+2 3g) didn't train during the week and is doubtful as McNair ( midf.5+3).
Practically full team for Preston, with only Cunningham ( def.13 1g) in doubt.
Guests loose only three matches in last four months, two of them against strong contender for promotion as Fulham and Middlesborough, their away balance is quite good ( 7-8-3 24/18), while Sunderland is not able to do good eprformances neither at home ( second from bottom with second worst away defense - 2-6-10 17/31.
Hosts are playing for their lives, but also Preston see promotion playoff zone near, only four points far and surely want give a sense to their strong second part of season.
Sunderland seems not able to do acceptable performances for the whole season and with their continuing problems of missings should be defeated also this time.
