When Sunderland conceded a late goal to draw with Coventry City on the opening day of the season, Alex Neil would have felt a huge sense of frustration on the club’s first day back in the Championship since 2018.

However, a thrilling 3-2 victory at Bristol City has left the Black Cats in second position in the division, giving the club some momentum as they bid to earn back-to-back promotions.

Mounting such an assault is a hope rather than an expectation right now, but there are signs that Sunderland have the firepower to earn respect throughout the campaign.

Securing the services of Everton forward Ellis Simms felt like a coup when the loan transfer was completed and he instantly showcased his threat at this level with a double at Ashton Gate.

Although Neil may have to refrain from selecting Simms with leading frontman Ross Stewart on occasions, Sunderland now possess attacking options which could rival the very best in the division over the coming months.

Lee Gregory should feature in the Sheffield Wednesday starting lineup after serving a one-match ban at the weekend.

While Michael Smith may again miss out through a minor injury, widespread changes could be made in midfield with Tyreeq Bakinson among those who could be named in the centre of the pitch.

Darren Moore conducted some shrewd business during the summer, but there is a sense that old and fresh faces will need to combine in order to challenge for the title in what feels like an increasingly-competitive division.

These two teams met on four occasions last season, Wednesday remaining unbeaten at Hillsborough but failing to win any of the most recent three encounters.

Jack Hunt and Dominic Iorfa may feature in the back three with Akin Famewo picking up an injury on Saturday.

Neil is also likely to rest some of his key men, subsequently handing game time to new arrivals and players who spent part of pre-season on the sidelines through injury.

Aji Alese should feature in the back three after his arrival from West Ham United, while Leon Dajaku is in line to feature in the final third.
