Meanwhile, Tony Mowbray faces his former club with the Black Cats down in 13th spot, although just three points adrift of the playoff.

Mowbray has already renewed acquintances with Blackburn since his departure in the summer, overseeing a 2-0 defeat in the reverse fixture at Ewood Park on October 18.

Sunderland have since continued on their inconsistent run this season, picking up 11 points from their following eight matches to cement their spot in mid-table.

However, Sunderland supporters are demanding more than consolidation during 2022-23, especially as they currently sit eight points behind their third placed opponents.

That scenario highlights the small margins of life in the Championship, and Sunderland will be heading into the New Year feeling like they are enjoying an excellent campaign if they can win on Monday.

Meanwhile, Blackburn have endured mixed emotions over their last two matches, following up one of their best wins of the season with a missed opportunity.

Off the back of suffering a 4-1 defeat to Preston North End, Jon Dahl Tomasson may have had concerns ahead of the visit to Norwich City, yet his side were fantastic as they returned from Carrow Road with a 2-0 victory.

Retaining third place in the standings, the pressure was off to a certain extent as Blackburn faced Nottingham Forest in the EFL Cup fourth round with the realistic possibility of earning another Premier League scalp.

However, Forest thoroughly outclassed their hosts, condemning them to a second successive 4-1 defeat at Ewood Park, and it leaves Tomasson aware that he has plenty of work ahead if Blackburn are to remain in contention for automatic promotion against the odds.

Sunderland vs. Blackburn Rovers Head to head

Sunderland have been the dominant side between these two teams, winning 42 matches while Rovers have won 31, and they have drawn in 19 of the 92 meetings so far. Sunderland have scored 153 goals and conceded 126 in the process.

Sunderland will be without Elliot Embleton and Danny Batth, the latter carrying a calf issue and the former being suspended and now ruled out with a long-term injury.

Dan Ballard could make his first start since sustaining a broken foot four months ago, having proven his fitness as an early substitute last weekend.
