A win at last!

Sunderland AFCI was at Villa Park, Birmingham, today to watch Aston Villa vs. Sunderland at the kind invitation of Ali Hall, a friend from church. The match ended 0-1: Sunderland’s first away win of the season, gaining some much-needed points to stay clear of the drop.

Sunderland are now on 30 points with 7 games left:

Premier League table - bottom half

We’re not free from relegation worries by any means, but at least we’ve got a win under our belts and are not in the bottom 3! The final 7 games for Sunderland are:

  • 29 March – Sunderland vs. West Ham
  • 5 April – Fulham vs. Sunderland (a 6-pointer!)
  • 12 April – Sunderland vs. Manchester City
  • 20 April – Newcastle vs. Sunderland (local derby)
  • 26 April – Sunderland vs. Middlesbrough (another local derby)
  • 3 May – Bolton vs. Sunderland (another 6-pointer!)
  • 11 May – Sunderland vs. Arsenal

Not the easiest of run-ins, then, but I’m sure we can snag 6 points or so…

  1. Sorry that the pies were a disappointment – but winning must've tasted sweet! Looked out for you on MOTD but no sighting.
    I'm sure Sunderland will be fine and still scrapping away in the Premiership next year!

  2. I did my degree at Sunderlan Polytechnic, which is now a university. So I have a special affinity for Roker Park :-)
