Our prediction for this League 1 match:
Sunderland will be looking to keep their automatic promotion hopes alive when they take on Wigan Athletic at DW Stadium on Tuesday evening. The Black Cats have been producing fine displays in the second half of the season, but they failed to impress in a 2-1 loss to Charlton at the weekend. Even though Bailey Wright, Jordan Willis, and Tom Flanagan remain sidelined with injuries, away win should be considered as this has to go down as a must-win game for the promotion-chasing visitors.
The Latics, on the other hand, picked up vital three points from the Doncaster clash, but despite the victory they remained in the relegation zone. Anyhow, we are tempted to put our money on the Black Cats as the Latics have already suffered 11 defeats on the road this season. In the first half of the season Wigan defeated Sunderland at Stadium of Light, meaning that the visitors are hungry for revenge.
Highlighted Player (Nathan Cameron):
Born in Birmingham, England, on November 21, 1991, Nathan Cameron is a professional footballer who plays for Macclesfield Town as a defender. Cameron is a product of the Coventry City football school, and he continued wearing the sky blue shirt at the senior level.
He made 48 appearances in the league for Coventry City, but he played for the likes of Nuneaton Town (loan), Northampton Town (loan), and Bury as well before joining Macclesfield Town. Nathan Cameron has one cap for the England U20 team, but he has yet to earn a call-up for the senior team.
The 188-cm-tall defender made his Macclesfield Town debut in the League two in a 2-0 loss to Milton Keynes Dons on November 17, 2018. His primary position is a centre-back, but he is capable of producing fine performances as a right-back as well. His preferred foot is right, and he wears the number 25 shirt at Macclesfield Town.
Highlighted Team (Sunderland):
Sunderland are a professional football club that have been playing their home games at the Stadium of Light since 1997. The capacity of the stadium is 49,000, but before expansion the original ground capacity was 42,000. Red and White shirts are Sunderland’s trademark and the club’s fiercest rivals are Newcastle United. The two local rivals have been contesting in the Tyne-Wear derby since 1898 and there have always been fireworks in what is one of the greatest derbies in English football. Sunderland were on the verge of dropping to the Championship in the 2015/2016 Premier League campaign, but experienced tactician Sam Allardyce eventually helped the team avoid relegation.
The Black Cats have won six First Division trophies (now the Premier League), with the team lifting two FA Cup titles. Sunderland won their first FA Cup trophy in 1937, with the team beating Preston North End 3-1 in the title game. The club was founded in 1879 as Sunderland and District Teachers A.F.C.
