Sunderland hope for statement win against bogey team

Despite their recent good form, Sunderland fans reckon they face a massive challenge against Charlton tomorrow, but are hoping for a 'statement win'.  They have only won once against the Addicks in 11 attempts since 2001:

The writer notes:  A struggling Charlton Athletic are up next in the Stadium of Light. The fact that they are struggling means nothing when it comes to this fixture. The Londoners have held the proverbial Indian Sign over Sunderland for years. Heartbreak is not far away when clashes between ourselves and them are referred back to.

From this writer’s perspective, this is a massive game for the lads. Charlton will come here with no fear. They will be aware of their previous results against Sunderland and it will surely be a motivating factor. This will be seen as the perfect tonic to get their season underway.

With players like Chris Gunter, Harry Arter and Conor Washington in their squad, this is a team full of international experience along with youth. It would be expected by the end of the season, their position will be a lot further north than it currently is.'

A statement draw would satisfy Charlton fans.   However, Johnnie Jackson's 100 per cent win record is under threat:
