GK: Lee Burge. With Jon McLaughlin away on international duty, this is a good match to help bring Burge back to speed following the injury.

RB: Luke O’Nien. With Conor McLaughlin suspended, Parkinson will surely go for O’Nien at right back.

CB: Brandon Taylor. Parkinson is facing an injury crisis at the back, with essentially every centre-half unavailable. Either Taylor or Jack Bainbridge a...

Phil Parkinson was happy to see the back of a stressful week with a 1-0 win over Southend. He also discussed the possibility of the Bristol Rovers game being postponed...

Parkinson said: “I’m very pleased. We’ve had two long trips on the road, and maybe we weren’t at our sharpest for the whole game, but in patches we were good. It’s important when you are not quite at your best you get the...

Sunderland beat Tranmere 5-0 with goals from Duncan Watmore, Chris Maguire, Lynden Gooch, Will Grigg and Luke O’Nien. Phil Parkinson spoke afterwards. “It’s important, I feel that.

RB: Conor McLaughlin. Our only option unless Parkinson moves O’Nien back there.

CB: Joel Lynch. We don’t really have any oth...

I’m predicting eight changes to the line-up following our embarrassing defeat at Lincoln? Here goes…      

GK: Lee Burge. No one will be surprised with this one. Burge is clearly the cup keeper and McLaughlin could do with some time away from the limelight.

RB: Conor McLaughlin. With O’Nien making a bit of a name for himself further forward, McLaughlin is our only senior...

Last weekend, my friend, my grandad and I headed to Accrington for what will hopefully be my first of many away trips to watch the Lads. With us unfortunately not being able to go to Bolton, it feels a fitting time to recap the day.

The day kicked off with a quick trip to the co-op to get (soft) drinks for the 2-and-a-half-hour bus journey to Lancashire. Excitement flowed through me and my...
