Meanwhile, Millwall are aware that victory at the weekend will effectively guarantee that they remain in the second tier for at least another year.

While Mike Dodds is unlikely to be handed the reins on a permanent basis after the conclusion of this season, he will want his current Sunderland side to end the campaign on a high note.

That looked ulikely on the back of six successive defeats, but the Black Cats have since responded by losing just one of their last six matches.

Although that was a 5-1 defeat at home to Blackburn Rovers, Sunderland have incredibly kept clean sheets in the other five games during that period.

Back-to-back goalless draws were posted against Leeds United and Bristol City before the Black Cats overcame West Bromwich Albion by a 1-0 scoreline last weekend.

Collecting points over that level of opposition can only act as a confidence boost ahead of trying to reach the 60-point mark. Four points are required from this match and the following encounters with Watford and Sheffield Wednesday.

On the other hand, Millwall’s decision to bring Neil Harris back to the club has proven to be inspired given that they are now all but assured of safety.

Either side of a period where they picked up just five points from six matches, they have won back-to-back games to leave them six points clear of the bottom three with three fixtures remaining.

A 1-0 victory over Leicester City was followed by a 3-1 win against Cardiff City, both matches taking place at The Den where Millwall are unbeaten in five games.

However, the Millers have been far less impressive on their travels, losing their last three such games and scoring just the one goal.

Sunderland vs. Millwall Head to head

In the 15 previous meetings between these two teams, they have each claimed five victories while they have drawn in five. Sunderland have scored 22 goals and conceded 17 in the process.
