Sunderland head coach Chris Coleman has praised the performance of George Honeyman following the Black Cats’ 1-0 league defeat at the hands of Queens Park Rangers last weekend. The 23-year-old has been a bright spark for the Wearsiders in an otherwise hugely disappointing campaign, and was recalled to the starting lineup for the away game at Loftus Road.
The Black Cats currently find themselves rooted to the bottom of the table with nine games left, and they are facing the distinct possibility of consecutive relegations unless they find a way to start winning games. Only four points separate the basement club from 21st-placed Barnsley, but their performances at the back have been miserable of late, to the extent that they have had to come to score three goals in order to pick up a draw against Middlesbrough last month.

Sunderland defender Bryan Oviedo has stressed that he is committed to the Black Cats’ cause as they seek to avoid back-to-back relegations from the Premier League to League One. The Black Cats are presently languishing in the drop zone after 28 games into the season, but Oviedo remains optimistic that the club will preserve their Championship status.

Sunderland managed to beat Fulham 1-0 to win for the first time at home for almost a year. Indeed the Black Cats have struggled at home. Their last home win was on the 17th of December 2016 where they managed to beat Watford 1-0. Since then Sunderland has struggled at home, and it took a goal from a substitute to break this unwanted record.
Ever since Chris Coleman has taken charge of the club, Sunderland has shown signs of improvement especially at the back where they have managed their third clean sheet in five games.

Sunderland manager Chris Coleman has said that Jack Rodwell will have to fight his way through in order to revive his career at the Stadium of Light. The 26-year-old joined the Black Cats from Manchester City back in the summer of 2014, and he has since failed to establish himself as a regular.
Injuries and poor form have restricted the England international to just 44 league starts, and he has managed just two outings for the Wearside club this season. Speaking in the lead up to the Burton game, Coleman stressed that Rodwell is accountable for his own failures, and he will have to work his way out of the rut.
