Last season the two sides met an astonishing five times. Portsmouth won their first league meeting before triumphing on penalties in the EFL Trophy final. Sunderland's fortunes changed, however, as they drew the second league clash and knocked Pompey out of the play-offs, although they would come up short against Charlton in the final.

Promising Portsmouth

Similarly to opponents Sunderland, Pompey have improved since the opening day. A loss to Shrewsbury was met with a fierce response in the form of an impressive 3-0 League Cup triumph over Championship side Birmingham City. This was coupled up with a solid 2-0 win over newly promoted Tranmere Rovers last weekend at Fratton Park that leaves Pompey just outside the playoffs.

Sunderland's start

An opening day draw at home to Oxford United will have underwhelmed most Sunderland supporters as they began their new League One campaign. However an identical 1-1 draw away at promotion candidates Ipswich Town will in turn boost their confidence. The Mackems are 14th.
