Anthony Patterson reveals why Middlesbrough result will have extra significance after Watford win

After a solid start to the season, Sunderland goalkeeper Anthony Patterson is looking forward to Saturday’s meeting against Middlesbrough.
Sunderland manager Anthony Patterson believes his team has improved on last season’s sixth-place result and is looking forward to face Middlesbrough at the Stadium of Light.


The Black Cats have 19 points from their first ten league games this season, with Patterson keeping his fourth clean sheet of the season in Wednesday’s 2-0 victory over Watford.

Since Sunderland’s promotion to the Championship last year, the 23-year-old has started every Championship game, and he believes confidence has built within a youthful squad.

“Obviously, having done so well last season, it was a little bit different at the start of the season,” Patterson stated when comparing this season to last. “I believe we took off from the same point we left. We’re doing incredibly well.

“I think we looked at the division at the start of the season and thought it would be tougher, but full credit to the lads and we’ve done really well and performed really well to put us where we are in the league.” Hopefully, we can keep it up for the rest of the season.”


Sunderland sit fourth in the Championship heading into Saturday’s match against Middlesbrough at the Stadium of Light, which will begin at 12:30pm.
