Sunderland vs Stoke City Championship Live Stream Free Online Full HD
After winning promotion back to the Championship last season under the management of Alex Neil, who would depart for Stoke City in August, Sunderland now find themselves in the midst of the playoff race in England’s second tier under Tony Mowbray.
The Black Cats moved into a strong position in the fight for top-six places thanks to a positive run between mid-January and mid-February, as they earned 10 points from a run of four league matches, courtesy of 2-0, 1-0 and 3-0 wins over Middlesbrough,
Reading and Queens Park Rangers respectively as well as a 1-1 draw away at Millwall, before only being pegged back in the dying minutes at home to Bristol City, as Nakhi Wellsdrew their visitors level at a goal apiece from the penalty spot deep into injury time.
Following that late disappointment, Mowbray’s men have been unable to bounce back in two attempts, firstly travelling to take on strugglers Rotherham United and suffering a 2-1 defeat,
with Joe Gelhardt‘s goal around the hour mark not enough to inspire a turnaround at the New York Stadium, before they most recently took on Coventry City away from home last Saturday.
After Jamie Allen put the Sky Blues ahead in the first half, Viktor Gyokeres doubled their lead in the 89th minute, and Amad Diallo‘s injury-time goal came too late to pull Sunderland back into the game, with the visitors succumbing to an 11th Championship loss of the campaign.

Such a dip in form has seen the Black Cats quickly drop to ninth spot in the playoff fight, and with the gap to Luton Town in the top six now extended to five points, they will know that they must quickly return to form to avoid losing any further ground before the run-in.
