Jason Steele, Billy Jones and John O’Shea have all been handed starts by Chris Coleman in place of Lee Camp, Donald Love and Bryan Oviedo as the gaffer looks to do what he can to compensate for both injuries and a sheer lack of goalkeeping quality.
This is how we’ll shape up following these changes:
Sunderland: Jason Steele, Billy Jones, Marc Wilson, John O’Shea, Lamine Kone, Paddy McNair, Lee Cattermole, Callum McManaman, George Honeyman, Aiden McGeady, Ashley Fletcher
Subs: Lee Camp, Josh Maja, Jake Clarke-Salter, Kazenga LuaLua, Adam Matthews, Ovie Ejaria, Joel Asoro
A win today is the last thing resembling a lifeline that we’ll see this season - anything else will undoubtedly relegate us. Let’s hope Coleman’s made the right call on the structure of today’s side.
