    Rochdale v Sunderland – Skybet League One

    Last time out Sunderland beat Portsmouth and Rochdale drew at Shrewsbury.
    The Black Cats head to the Crown Oil Arena on Tuesday, kick-off 7:45pm, looking to build on Saturday's 2-1 victory at home to Portsmouth.
    Marc McNulty is unlikely to figure in Sunderland’s game at Rochdale in midweek after limping off against Portsmouth, according to Jack Ross.
    The on-loan Reading striker suffered a hamstring problem in the 2-1 victory over Pompey and went off five minutes into the second period.
    Ross says the injury does not appear to be serious, but with the Black Cats heading to Rochdale on Tuesday night there may not be time for the Scotland international to recover.
    Charlie Wyke and Will Grigg will be in-line to replace McNulty at Rochdale, with the former having impressed off the bench in cameos against Accrington Stanley and Pompey in the past week.
    Sunderland fans will be able to buy tickets on the night at Rochdale. While tickets are currently off sale, supporters wishing to pay on the night can do so as tickets will be on sale from 6pm at the study centre at the away end.
    Jack Ross:
    “It’s a hamstring injury, I don’t think it is overly-serious but we have a quick turnaround such is the crazy nature of the fixture schedule early in the season. We will see how he is tomorrow morning but I would think it is unlikely it will settle down in time for Tuesday.”
    “It’s a hamstring injury, a relatively minor one, but he’ll miss tomorrow evening and then we’ll see how the rest of the week goes for him.”
    "Duncan was on the grass today doing a little bit of running so hopefully towards the end of the week he might start training properly, Ethan has still not been on the grass so I would imagine he still a couple of weeks away."

    Betting Odds:
    Home
    29/10 Away 10/11 Draw 23/10

    My two pence:
    The office was a bit quiet today for some reason <whistle>
    I think Jack will keep the same 4 at the back and Charlie Wyke will come in ahead of Will Grigg.
    Rochdale have started well but I hope we can kick on now.

    My guess is a 2-0 win
    Ha’way the Lads

    Fanfares out. I'm actually going to the game. Anyone else heading down?

    In the Rochdale end sat with a season ticket holder but beggars can't be choosers.

    2-0 this. I’ve put £30 on it.

    Big confidence lift from winning from behind in a big game Saturday, I see some stability and a run coming.

    Hoping Ross will play this team:

    --------------------J McLaughlin---------------
    C McLaughlin---Willis---Ozturk---Hume
    ---------------Leadbitter----Power---------
    Gooch-------------McGeady--------Maguire
    -----------------------Wyke-----------------------

    Balanced in defence, attacking midfielders interchangeable and can feed off Wyke as the target man.

    Fancy us to win 3-0

    I remember Henderson give us a lot of trouble here last season so we'll have to watch him closely. Apart from that I fully expect a comfortable 2-0 win.

    Or 1-1

    @OscarJCMedia Rochdale's 16-year-old full-back Luke Matheson will be up against Aiden McGeady tonight. Unreal test for the youngster... #SAFC

    Embleton back on the bench, hope he along with Hume get some time on the pitch with us 2 or 3 up, with Watmore is getting close too, a strong bench with potential is on the cards.
