Our prediction for this League 1 match:
Sunderland will be looking to build on a 2-0 win over Oxford United when they welcome Peterborough United at their Stadium of Light. Sunderland’s home ground is anything but bright without spectators, but the Blacks Cats are still seen as favourites to win Saturday’s derby. USA international Lynden Gooch, who came as a substitute to score against the Yellows, is pushing for a start.
The Posh, on the other hand, quickly bounced back from the day 1 defeat to Accrington, with the team beating Fleetwood Town at home at the weekend. Peterborough aim to keep on climbing the standings, but given Sunderland’s display in the 2-0 win over Oxford, we predict that the visitors are going to return home empty-handed. It has to be noted that the Posh scored two goals in the stoppage time in the triumph over the Fishermen at the weekend.
