Sunderland midfielder Jack Colback hopes to avoid another courageous defeat to Newcastle United this weekend.

Colback is hoping their luck can even itself out a little at the Stadium of Light on Sunday.

He said: “We probably outclassed them in both the games last year but only came away with a point, which was massively disappointing.

“From what I remember growing up, Sunderland have played well but not had the rub of the green.

“We would rather have a shocker of a game and win. Defeat just isn’t an option.”
