Prediction: 3-1

Bristol Rovers

Bristol Rovers

Sunderland will be aiming to make amends for the unsuccessful 2019/20 League One campaign when they kick off the new season with a home game against Bristol Rovers. The Black Cats played above expectations last term, but they are once again seen as No. 1 favourites to secure automatic promotion to the Championship. The club chiefs did well to reinforce the squad in the summer transfer window, but Stewart Donald’s troops will have to prove their worth on the field.

Ben Garner’s men, on the other hand, experienced all sorts of problems at the back in the EFL Cup loss to Ipswich Town (0-3), and seeing that Sunderland are a real force to be reckoned with at home, the visitors are unlikely to grab something from the season opener. In their last meeting at Stadium of Light Sunderland outplayed Bristol Rovers 3-0.
