The Sunderland Curse

Quite astonishingly, Newcastle United have not beaten Sunderland in their last nine meetings.

The ‘Sunderland curse’ may pay dividends for Sheffield Wednesday, who have three former and one current Black Cat on their books.

Goalkeeper Keiren Westwood (Pictured) will definitely be looking to keep a clean sheet as he faces his former North East rivals, who established himself as first choice keeper in the Premier League.

Hopeful of hitting the back of the net will be Scottish striker Steven Fletcher, the Owls number six spent four years at Sunderland, scoring twenty three league goals.

Signing for Sunderland over ten years ago, Ross Wallace conjured up eight league goals in fifty three league games between 2006 and 2009.

Finally, Will Buckley, currently at Sheffield Wednesday on loan from Sunderland, what a dream come true it would be for him if he could find the net in any way shape or form, despite him most likely starting from the bench.
