SUNDERLAND have named an unchanged line-up for the fifth game in a row as they prepare to take on West Brom at the Stadium of Light.
Sunderland currently boast a two-point advantage over Norwich City, so with their goal difference significantly better than the Canaries', a point will effectively guarantee their Premier League survival.
Santiago Vergini continues at right-back in preference to Phil Bardsley, and Liam Bridcutt once again has to make do with a place on the bench.
West Brom boss Pepe Mel has named an attacking line-up that features former Sunderland forward Stephane Sessegnon on his first return to the Stadium of Light.
