Sunderland are back at the Stadium of Light for the third game this season already after a loss last weekend with Rotherham United up next for the Black Cats after a dreadful start for the away side this campaign.
Rotherham have struggled tremendously already this season, drawing with Blackburn Rovers last time out after also receiving yet another red card. Fred Omyedinma was sent off that day after two yellow cards in the space of a few seconds, as he also scored just two minutes earlier - Hakeen Odoffin scored that day too.
Rotherham did manage to beat Morecambe in the League Cup two weeks ago, but this did only come through penalties with the club drawing 1-1 in regular time. Joshua Kayode scored that day, but this does now mean three games down and three winless games for Matt Taylor's side.
Rotherham were also smashed on the opening day by Stoke City with a 4-1 battering after a goal from Lee Peltier, as Cafu was also sent off that day.
As for Sunderland, they were beaten on the road last weekend with a 2-1 defeat at the hands of Preston North that saw Jack Clarke net a penalty.
Sunderland also lost their EFL Cup first round encounter with Crewe Alexandra that saw Chris Rigg score in the second half before a penalty shootout defeat. Worse yet, the Black Cats also lost their other game at the Stadium of Light this season with an opening day defeat against Ipswich Town where Dan Niel scored.
