Sky Sports pundit David Prutton is backing Sunderland to get their first home win in nearly a year when Fulham visit the north east.
The Black Cats, who have hired former Fulham man Chris Coleman to try and get them out of a relegation dogfight, last won at the Stadium of Light on December 17 when they beat Watford in the Premier League.
Since then, it’s been a miserable time at home and the former Sheffield Wednesday man is backing the away side to get their first home win against Slavisa Jokanovic’s side today, with a 1-0 win being predicted.
In his Prutton Predicts segment on Sky Sports, he said: “We've reached a year since Sunderland last won a game at home. December 17, 2016 was the last time the Black Cats could celebrate victory at the Stadium of Light, when they beat Watford in the Premier League.
“They're up against a somewhat revitalised Fulham who have started to rediscover some of the style that catapulted them into the play-offs last season.
“But I think this will be the day for Sunderland when that dreadful run ends.”
