Nottingham Forest v Sunderland Preview

Ahead of this weekend's big match between two sleeping giants of the EFL Championship, I was invited to have a chat with Graham from the Roker Report, to preview the action.

Topics up for discussion were:

  • Sunderland's struggles since relegation to the Championship, and how they can learn from Forest's travails over the last twenty years
  • The secrets to success in the Championship, and whether either Mark Warburton or Chris Coleman have the tools to crack the code (including a mention for Billy Davies' better qualities)
  • Player rebellions: do Sunderland have the same problems as Forest had under Gary Megson?
  • Daryl Murphy and David Vaughan - can they make an impression against their former club?
  • The balance of youth and experience in both teams, including a mention for Barrie McKay and Jason Cummings

You can catch the podcast via the Roker Report website - do give it a listen!
