Simon Grayson is hopeful the extent of Lewis Grabban’s injury won’t keep him out for too long.

The striker, who has scored three goals for Sunderland since his season-long loan switch from AFC Bournemouth, saw his evening cut short last night when he limped off with a hamstring injury after 36 minutes.

With the match locked at 0-0, James Vaughan, 29, was handed the task of leading the line for the lads as they continued to lay siege to Nottingham Forest’s goal.

But while frustration mounted in Sunderland’s final third, Daryl Murphy provided an ice cool finish at the other end as Forest somehow stole three points at the Stadium of Light.

Speaking post-match, Grayson admitted he couldn’t provide too much of an update on Grabban but is hopeful Sunderland’s leading scorer won’t be out for too long.

“I think he just tweaked his hamstring so I don’t know the severity of it until probably later, hopefully it is not too long,” he said.

“Of course, it would be a blow because he is a good player, we are a little bit short in those numbers.

“We have Aiden McGeady to come back, Duncan Watmore coming back, we still have options.

“Both Lamine and Aiden set off training yesterday but both as a precaution both pulled out.

"Both are not a million miles away. Let’s be hopeful.”

Bit like the boxing match in Porridge where Godber and his opponent both "threw" the fight perhaps - no attacking from either side :)

I would settle for point.


Actually, I would still be disappointed with only a point. Hope springs eternal.

A point would do fine. One step at a time HM

Edit: In fact we'll need two steps as we'll have to score a goal to get a point due to our defensive frailty

It's getting to the point where a 1-0 loss is a good result!

A Hull perspective

After seven matches of the season, it's difficult to put in to perspective how critical this home game with Sunderland is this Saturday. After double defeat on the road, Hull City have to get back to winning ways sharpish, if they wish to become realistic contenders for the play-off and promotion race. The Black Cats are shot with confidence themselves, after four straight losses, but City have this uncanny knack of being Sunderland's saviours with alarming regularity. See last season's top flight encounter here, for damning proof.

Trying to place a positive slant on affairs, City are the division's top scorers and have rifled in 10 goals in three home games so far this season. Much of that is down to the stunning start young Jarrod Bowen has had to the campaign - the winger netting five times in seven games - leading to the Championship's young player of the month for August award. Fikayo Tomori will be hoping for a home debut in defence, while Jackson Irvine will be pushing for his first start in midfield, after arriving from Burton Albion.

Sunderland manager Simon Grayson is adamant his side are working hard to remedy four straight losses. It's just typical that Hull City are next in line to break such a run - but the Tigers need to take confidence from their goal scoring record on home turf, surely? Two big injury blows for the Wearsiders see John O'Shea and Lewis Grabban ruled out of contention. Aiden McGeady and Lamine Kone are subject to late fitness tests. Duncan Watmore has featured in a recent U23 match, but the game comes to soon to be considered.

Ref Watch: Sunderland (h) - Darren England

Sunderland at the KCOM Stadium.

Involved professionally within the game since 2013, he officiated 42 matches last term - including his first experience of a Championship fixture and the League Two play-off final at Wembley - showing 121 yellow cards and nine red cards in those games.

England has taken charge of seven games in the current campaign to date, four of which have been in the Championship. He refereed his first game involving the Tigers earlier this season when he was the man in the middle for our 4-1 home win over Burton Albion last month.

Assisting him at the KCOM will be Billy Smallwood and Michael George whilst Michael Salisbury will take charge of the fourth official duties.

From the Hull article two posts above it seems they have the same forebodings we normally have. You know the ones, a team that can't scrape a point anywhere play SAFC and get the first win in ages, a forward who can't get a goal for love nor money scores two against us. If they have that curse on them then it is a 0-2 win for us with Vaughan scoring both, maybe we even get a third for N'Dong as he needs a goal as well. :D

Sunderland continue their Sky Bet Championship campaign on Saturday at Hull City’s KCOM Stadium.

#HawayTheLads

THREE POINTS

Chasing their first win in the league since August’s 3-1 victory at Norwich City, Simon Grayson’s side head to Humberside in good spirits following a morale-boosting display against Nottingham Forest. Chances were aplenty for Sunderland however, crucially, they were punished for their lax finishing by Daryl Murphy who slotted home a late winner.

Hull, on the other end, will be glad to return home after back-to-back defeats. Derby County eased to a 5-0 victory over them last Friday, with Seb Larsson’s first-half penalty miss proving pivotal for Hull. The Tigers were then defeated at Craven Cottage on Wednesday as Fulham notched their first home win in 2017-18.

With both sides gunning for three points this Saturday, it could prove to be an interesting affair on Humberside…

WHAT THE HISTORY BOOKS SAY

Admittedly, the most important result is the one at 4.50pm tomorrow afternoon at the KCOM, but if the history books are anything to go by then maybe we could have some Sunderland cheer on Humberside. The Black Cats have lost just one of their previous five league matches at Hull, a run which includes May's 2-0 win at the KCOM. Jermain Defoe scored his last goal for Sunderland that afternoon after Billy Jones had opened the scoring. Sunderland have also previously managed a impressive 4-1 win at the KCOM in recent history, with Steed Malbranque netting a cracker that afternoon in December 2008. But what will happen tomorrow? Let us know your thoughts via Twitter, @SunderlandAFC.

FAMILIAR FACES

In contention to face Sunderland are three faces who have previously worn the famous red and white stripes. Larsson has made six appearances for Hull City and could start in the middle of the park against his former club on Saturday afternoon. The Swedish international spent six years on Wearside and made 203 appearances before leaving in the summer. Former Black Cat David Meyler could also line-up alongside Larsson in the heart of Hull’s team. The 28-year-old moved to the Stadium of Light in 2008 but saw his time on Wearside plagued with injuries before he later completed a move to the KCOM in 2013. Fraizer Campbell, who turned 30 on Wednesday, is the third and final former Black Cat who could feature as the Tigers look to return to winning ways.

DUO IN CONTENTION

Sunderland will be without Lewis Grabban and John O’Shea for Saturday’s trip to Hull City. Grabban was forced off with a hamstring injury in Tuesday’s night’s defeat to Nottingham Forest while John O’Shea didn’t feature after playing the second 45 against Sheffield United last weekend. Lamine Kone and Aiden McGeady, meanwhile, missed the midweek defeat to Forest but are expected to return to training today.

Hull City boss Leonid Slutsky will, however, have the same group of players as in midweek to choose from. The head coach has no new injury concerns while Evandro, Will Keane, Kevin Stewart, Abel Hernandez, Ryan Mason and Moses Odubajo remain absent.

Simon Grayson has urged his close-knit squad to battle on as they look to climb the Sky Bet Championship.

The 47-year-old takes his Sunderland side to Hull City on Saturday as they look to turn Tuesday’s frustrations into three points at the KCOM.

The Black Cats suffered midweek heartache as Nottingham Forest struck late on to punish Grayson’s side for not taking any of their changes, with Callum McManaman, Jonny Williams and George Honeyman all going close.

But Grayson is refusing to dwell on the disappointment of midweek, and is instead using it as fuel to inspire his players to go one step further this weekend.

“I was really pleased with how we played and when I watched the game back again we were really pleased with how we played,” he said.

“We were probably the most dominant we have been over a period in terms of how we affected the play and how we kept the ball.

“The one thing that was missing was (our ability) to put the ball in the back of the net.

“The players showed a lot of character and desire to respond from Saturday’s disappointing result and it was good to see they wanted to do well.

“We are all frustrated that we aren’t getting the results but ultimately it is an isolation of four games that we have lost because we were unbeaten in the five before that.

“If we play like we did on Tuesday night then the results will come.

“We have got to keep working and doing the right things,” he continued.

“Ultimately, we will get the victory. The lads are desperate to do well and they showed on Tuesday what they are capable of.

“The new lads will get fitter, signs will improve and we will turn this corner very quickly.”

David Meyler's late strike rescued a deserved point for Hull City in their Championship game against Sunderland.

James Vaughan's powerful first-half header, his first goal for the Black Cats, gave the visitors the lead.

But Republic of Ireland midfielder Meyler pounced eight minutes from time to leave Sunderland without a win in six league games.

Meyler almost scored a winner for the Tigers, but his shot was palmed wide by Sunderland goalkeeper Robbin Ruiter.

safc.com’s Sam Lightle reviews the action from the KCOM Stadium as Sunderland continued their Sky Bet Championship campaign this afternoon.


Sunderland were forced to settle for a point on Humberside as Hull City fought back in the second period.

James Vaughan scored his first goal for the club, nodding home a fine cross from fellow new boy Callum McManaman with 16 minutes played.

Both sides then had chances to add more goals to the game, but it was former Black Cat David Meyler who made his chance count when he poked the ball past Robbin Ruiter to ensure the points were split in the final 10 minutes.

SCENE SETTER

Ahead of kick-off Simon Grayson was boosted by the news that Lamine Kone was fit enough to return to action after missing Tuesday’s match against Nottingham Forest. Kone returned to the starting XI, in replace of Ty Browning while Vaughan came in for the injured Lewis Grabban. Hull City, meanwhile, lined up with former Black Cat Seb Larsson in the heart of midfield. Former red and white favourites Meyler and Fraizer Campbell started on the bench for the hosts. Fine rain swept across Humberside as kick-off approached, joining an ice-cool breeze that was swirling around the KCOM Stadium. The stage was set. Both sides took to the pitch in search of three points, with Hull City suffering back-to-back defeats on road in the last week while Sunderland chased their first league win since they dismantled Norwich City 3-1 in August.

RUIT PLACE

Sunderland were steady with their approach, knocking the ball from side to side with Jonny Williams involved heavily in the transition between midfield and attack. Vaughan failed to make a meaningful connection on the ball as McManaman swung it in from the right with five minutes played. But less than 60 seconds later, the Black Cats were left with their hearts in their mouth as Jarrod Bowen flashed a low ball into the mix, Ruiter stuck out an arm and just about managed to cut the dangerous looking ball out that saw Noucha Dicko end up in the back of the net.

OH VAUGHANY, VAUGHANY!

Hull looked brighter in the opening stages, with Ruiter the keeper who was more involved but it counted for little when Vaughan climbed well at the back post to head Sunderland in front on 16 minutes. McManaman got to the byline and stood the ball up towards the back post, allowing Vaughan time to pick his spot which he duly did to score his first goal for the club. It was nothing more than Vaughan had deserved for his tireless efforts, pulling Michael Hector, especially, all over the place. And it could’ve and probably should’ve been 2-0 on the half-hour mark when the 29-year-old caught Hector in possession on the edge of the box. Vaughan drove at goal but was denied by the feet of Allan McGregor opted to try and ram the ball home at the Scot’s near post. Sunderland continued to impress as the opening half wore on, playing nice triangles in the middle of the park with Williams pivotal to controlling the tempo. But the lads’ hard work could’ve been undone on the stroke of half-time when Wilson conceded a free-kick 20-yards out. That meant one thing and one thing only. A Seb Larsson free-kick. Fortunately, the Swede didn’t get his angles quite right and Sunderland held their lead at the midway stage.

THE SECOND 45

A double change from the hosts greeted Sunderland at the start of the second 45, Hector and Markus Henriksen departed, with former Black Cat Meyler and Jon Toral coming on in their place. The Tigers were much-improved and quickly set about penning Sunderland deep into their own half. Defensive resilience, a cool head and dissciplein was key for the lads as they looked to keep the hosts at bay, with Kamil Grosicki arrowing a strike towards Ruiter’s near post. Wave after wave of attacks continued to crash against the Black Cats’ backline as the rain came in, Toral headed Ola Aina’s cross wide from eight yards after Kone came to Sunderland’s rescue as Dicko stormed through.

ON THE CHARGE

It was a storm Sunderland had to weather and weather it they did, roared on by an extremely vocal travelling support who dragged them up the pitch. McManaman forced McGregor to make his first save of the half with a venomous drive inside the area. The Scot parried his effort out towards Vaughan but he was unable to hook it back towards goal. Sunderland continued to fly forward, Didier Ndong won possession high up the field and while his pass to Vaughan had too much on it, Oviedo gratefully stormed forward and won a corner.

A LATE TWIST

The Tigers never gave up, though, and managed to claw themselves level when Meyler struck lucky in the 81st minute. The Republic of Ireland midfielder stabbed the ball towards Ruiter’s near post and the Dutchman was unable to keep the effort out as it trickled home to earn his side a share of the spoils.

Next up, Everton in the Carabao Cup.

Hull City: McGregor, Hector (Meyler, 45), Grosicki, Dicko (Campbell, 68), Larsson, Bowen, Dawson, Henriksen (Toral, 45), Kingsley, Tomori, Aina
Subs: Marshall, Irvine, Diomande, Clark

Sunderland: Ruiter, Oviedo, Cattermole, Williams (Rodwell, 75), Vaughan (Gooch, 87), McManaman (Jones, 78), Ndong, Matthews, Kone, Honeyman, Wilson
Subs: Steele, Browning, Love, Gibson

On the positive side, it's a point on the board.

However, we were winning and playing well. The goal in the first half helped and they grew in confidence as the match progressed. Was really impressed with Williams, McManaman and Vaughan. Why the hell he had to take off two of our best players and put two of the worst ones on, I'll never know. Brought on Rodwell and Jones who did nothing to help secure the three points and I was actually scared in case we ended up with no points at all.

Yet again I'm frustrated and disappointed with the result :(

For a while I thought my prediction was going to happen Quote: If they have that curse on them then it is a 0-2 win for us with Vaughan scoring both :D, however I also mentioned this Quote: :shh: I am saying nothing about ex SAFC players lining up against us after the Forest game. :shh:. Ex Sunderland players just love scoring against us.

What a scabby goal to lose two points to -a hopeful toe-poke that Kone nudges past Ruiter :( Still I suppose Hull have far too many of our ex players for us to escape the curse
