Stoke v Sunderland Live
The below article is for a previous encounter. However, we will also be showing todays game live inside the members area!. Stoke will see the visit of Sunderland on Saturday as an opportunity to grab much needed points as the new Premier League season gets set for serious business. Catch all the live football action from that game by signing up with us here on Live Sport Network.
The Potters have had a decent start to the season, winning one game and losing another. Last week they drew 0-0 against Birmingham thanks to Stoke goalkeeper Thomas Sorensen, who effected some superb saves in the latter half of the game.
Boss Tony Pulis will have been glad to escape with a point from St Andrews last week and will hope his side has enough ammunition to down Sunderland this week. James Beattie suffered a knee problem in the game against the Blues and is a doubtful starter for this game.
Stoke play League One side Leyton Orient in the Carling Cup during the mid-week and Pulis is set to give Andy Griffin, Danny Pugh, Carl Dickinson and Leon Cort some much needed match time.
Meanwhile Sunderland have also begun well under new boss Steve Bruce. the Black Cats have lost one game to Chelsea, but have been good on the attack with Kenwyne Jones playing a starring role. Last week they beat Blackburn 2-1 thanks to a brace from Jones. The Black Cats won even after Gael Givet's early strike had given the Rovers a 1-0 lead.
Its early days yet, but Sunderland find themselves in the top six of the table, a position that should give their fans as well as manager huge satisfaction.
