History of the Sunderland v Millwall fixture

Millwall travel to take on Sunderland at Stadium Of Light on Saturday evening, needing to turn around their fortunes at the ground. The Lions will be hoping to improve upon a record which has seen them lose 9 and win only 2 of the 14 games.

The last time the two teams met at Sunderland was back in December 1995, over five years ago, with Sunderland annihilating their visitors 6 - 0 in a League Division One match.

Recent respective form guides

Sunderland could not have a worse home record, losing every single one of the last six matches played! Black Cats have conceded a disappointing 14 goals in this period, and managed to convert only 3 of their own chances.

Millwall's away form is none too clever either, coming away with three points on 3 occassions, but drawing 1 and losing 2. The Lions's have scored 8 goals in these games, but conceded an alarming 10.

Sunderland are hovering perilously just above the relegation zone, with 0 points from 1 matches. Millwall are just outside the promotion places, in 4th, having taken 3 points from 1 games.
