Burnley vs Sunderland Match Preview
Sunderland are on a roll against League One opposition but could find things a great deal tougher when they visit Burnley in the Carabao Cup on Wednesday.
The Black Cats were hugely disappointed to miss out on promotion last season after back-to-back relegations, losing the play-off final to Charlton with almost the final kick of normal time, but are going the right way about trying to put that right.
Jack Ross’ side are unbeaten this term and have won their last four matches, including their first-round tie in this competition 3-1 away to League One rivals Accrington Stanley.
Now they find themselves travelling to east Lancashire again, only this time it will be much more difficult against a Burnley side who have started the Premier League campaign promisingly without the distraction of the Europa League qualifiers they had 12 months ago.
The Clarets were only denied an excellent victory away to Wolves on Sunday by conceding a penalty equaliser seven minutes into stoppage time.
Sean Dyche is gradually increasing the strength in depth of his Burnley squad year on year and with the likes of Charlie Taylor and Matej Vydra likely to be given an opportunity to impress here, they are backed to progress comfortably to round three.
