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.
