A 0-0 draw at The Emirates last night was enough to secure Sunderland’s Ninth consecutive Season in England’s Top Flight.
It’s a double positive for the Black Cats though as it leaves their Northern arch Rivals Newcastle United fighting to stay up against Hull in a fight to the death on the final day of the season.
Hull, who currently occupy the last relegation spot, entertain Manchester United while Newcastle host West Ham.
Steve Bruce’s Hull must win or they are definitely down; a Newcastle win will send Hull down whatever their result.
If Newcastle draw and Hull win, the Magpies will be relegated on goal difference.
Hull have lost their last three games while Newcastle have one point from a possible 30.
Orange and black is the new red and white……..
