Successfully moving themselves up into 14th seat in current English Premier League standings, Sunderland are still keen on pushing themselves forward and targeting all three points when they play host to Hull City this Saturday, February 8. Winning their last three games in all competition, the Black Cats are in a positive mood ahead of that encounter and won't be settling down in grabbing any other results aside from three points against their visitor.
Meanwhile, Hull themselves will also be pushing for maximum result as they start to struggle in recent matches, putting their position under a serious threat of falling into that relegation seat, especially since the points gap are really tight in that bottom half. Losing their last four league games, Steve Bruce's men are really keen on ending that negative run this weekend, since on paper there's a very open chance that they can snatch something from that game.
Sunderland found their survival mission got halted this weekend as the suffered a disappointing home defeat in the hands of Hull City. Signs of the home side's defeat was seen early in that game where they were forced to play with only 10 men after West Brown got sent off in the third minute. That situation gave Hull much advantage as they grabbed a 2-0 victory with goals coming from Shane Long on 16 minutes along with Nikica Jelavic on 62 minutes.
