This will be just the sixth meeting between the two sides, with the first coming in 2019, in which the game ended 2-2.
Since then, though, The Black Cats have a very good record against them. They have never lost to them, and have won the last four meetings.
That includes the reverse fixture from earlier this season, which was played just last month, with Sunderland coming out 2-0 winners.
How will tomorrow’s game play out, though?
Sunderland let their lead slip twice on Tuesday night as they played out a 2-2 draw with Hull City.
That means they have now gone five games without a win and have picked up just five points from their last six. They now find themselves in 19th place in the form table.
Whilst they lost last time out at home, The Black Cats were unbeaten in their previous eight at the Stadium of Light.
Accrington Stanley Form
Stanley left it very late to pick up all three points on Tuesday night, as they scored in the 91st minute to beat Doncaster 2-1.
Their recent results have been slightly better than Sunderland’s, picking up eight points from their last six. They now currently sit in 13th place in the form table.
Their away record has been very poor, though, winning just one of their last eight games on the road.
