The Terriers will continue their 2022/23 Sky Bet Championship campaign on Tuesday 18 April at the Stadium of Light where they will take on Sunderland; 7.45pm kick-off.
Town will be going into this game looking to improve on their defeat against Sunderland in November, where they conceded two goals to the Wearside team. Goals from Amad Diallo and Alex Pritchard secured the visitors’ win.
Sunderland currently reside 10th in the Sky Bet Championship. Last season the North East side finished fifth in Sky Bet League One, qualifying for the Play-Offs. In their semi-final, they beat Sheffield Wednesday 2-1 on aggregate and went on to beat Wycombe Wanderers 2-0 in the final, securing their return to the second flight of English football.
Tony Mowbray is the current Head Coach of Sunderland. Spending his on field career playing for the likes of Middlesbrough, Celtic and Ipswich Town, the north Yorkshireman left Blackburn Rovers and joined Sunderland toward the beginning of the 2022/23 season following the departure of Alex Neil.
ONES TO WATCH
Born in the Côte d'Ivoire, Diallo is currently the top goal scorer for the Black Cats. Amad signed for Sunderland at the beginning of this season on a loan deal from Manchester United. Having made his senior breakthrough at just 17 with Atalanta he made the move to Old Trafford where he represented United in the UEFA Champions League, as well as playing and scoring for the senior Côte d'Ivoire national team. Having spent the previous season on loan with Rangers in the Scottish Premiership, the forward has made a real impact for the Championship club scoring 12 goals and creating three assists so far this season.
A familiar face for Town, Alex Pritchard gained the advantage for the Black Cats in the two nil victory against back in November. The midfielder climbed through the ranks at West Ham United and Tottenham Hotspur, making his senior debut for the latter in 2014. Pritchard joined Sunderland in July 2021 at the expiration of his Town contract. Having represented England at U20 and U21 level and playing over 44 Premier League matches, Pritchard has real pedigree to his name, underlined by a place in the 2014/15 Sky Bet Championship Team of the Year during his time on loan with Brentford.
After an initial loan at the end of the 2021/22 season, Jack Clarke made the move to Sunderland permanent from Tottenham Hotspur in the summer of 2022 on a four-year-deal. The 22-year-old midfielder started his career with Leeds United, where he made 22 senior appearances before his move to Spurs, but returned to his first club on loan as part of the agreement. Clarke also had loan spells with Queens Park Rangers and Stoke City before his move to Sunderland. Sitting as third top goal scorer for Sunderland so far this season, the youngster has 10 goals as well as 10 assists in his 44 appearances.
