Sunderland v Newcastle Preview: Advocaat looks to continue winning tradition

Dick Advocaat will look to follow in the footsteps of his two Sunderland predecessors and earn a first victory in charge of the club against Newcastle in the Tyne-Wear derby.

Both Gus Poyet and Paolo Di Canio lost their first games in charge of Sunderland - like Advocaat - but went on to claim a maiden win in their second match against Newcastle.

The story is too old to be commented.
