Sunderland v Hull City: aim to be a Defoe, SuperKev or Bobby Kerr winner

This week’s Guess the Score is attracting plenty of entries, which is hardly surprising given
the importance of Saturday’s home game against Hull City. Bottom versus third-bottom is not the stuff of dreams for supporters of the brands – Man Utd/City/Chelsea/Arsenal etc – but it’s got the look of our Cup Final, or maybe the first of several.

There is, perhaps, another reason for the rush of interest: the quality of this week’s prize for whoever is first to predict the correct score.

Gone, for now, is that dependable receptacle of tea, coffee or something stronger, the good old Salut! Sunderland mug samples of which can be found in many a home up and down the land and maybe beyond.

Some nice people at the Art of Football have offered to sponsor the competition in the run-up to Christmas. There is no need to wait for a win; if you like what you see and want one for yourself or as a present, please go to their site and make a purchase.

A Guess the Score winner would be allowed to choose one of the displayed prints. Usual rules apply: be first with the right scoreline. To help the Art of Football help us, please have a UK delivery address. But you do not have to be a Sunderland supporter or predict a Sunderland win; a Hull winner, for example, would be able to choose a print appropriate to his or her allegiance.

But there is still ample time to enter Guess the Score and, I am sure, scorelines that have not yet been selected. To avoid the confusion of entries appearing at different posts, you may add your prediction ONLY at the correct link:
