For this midweek visit to Doncaster Rovers, Salut! Sunderland reverts to a “just for fun” format for the Guess the Score.
The coffers are empty and there’s a backlog of prizes to be ordered for previous winners.
Normal service – ie prize mugs – will be restored once M Salut feels less skint and has honoured outstanding obligations.
Have a go anyway. It’s a clash of two teams up there with the League One frontrunners.
I love the way our Donny Who are You? interviewee, Darren Burke (yet another good read in the series and due to be published tonight) describes the passion of our supporters, with the 4,000 away allocation sold out:
As long as Sunderland accept their current placing with good grace (Leeds never did when they were in League One!) they have got more chance of a quick return. The fans have that whole North East fervour going on – it isn’t very often we see the away end at the Keepmoat full and 4,000 tickets sold out for a midweek match weeks in advance says it all. I’m looking forward to the return at the SoL – will be my first visit.
Ha’way the Lads.
