PREVIEW: Sunderland v Hull City

It's no secret that both Sunderland and Hull City are rotting from the core, given both have owners who have lost significant interests in their respective clubs and are (allegedly) looking to sell on, but the scale of desperation and fundamental mismanagement is alarming - and now finally coming home to roost. Astonishing then, just a few months on from being a Premier League fixture, both clubs are staring down a double barrel relegation to League One.

Stadium of fright...

Hull City's problems are deep and enduring, yet new manager Nigel Adkins continues to pipe up positively when fronting up publicly. And this week, he genuinely does have something to shout about, with long term injury victim Will Keane back in the squad after 14 months out to boost striker options. David Meyler, Seb Larsson and Fraizer Campbell are all included too, as they bid to play against their former club, while in a further boost, defender Ondrej Mazuch is also back in contention after a recent hamstring injury.

If Sunderland's new boss Chris Coleman was unsure of the size of his task, the ex-Wales manager will be left in no doubt now. Bottom of the table and entrenched in a relegation battle, the Black Cats are now struggling to find the back of the net, scoring just once in 5 league games since Christmas. Team news fares little better, with midfielder Didier Ndong commencing a 3 game ban after seeing his appeal against a red card fail, while defender Marc Wilson is a doubt with a groin strain.

Don't forget the Hull City fans forum returns at 7pm this Friday evening on Hull Kingston Radio 107.4FM. You can download the free app, tune in on your radio, or listen online if you click here!
