Inside Sunday's match programme

by Stuart Vose

Take a sneak peek inside latest issue of Red & White.

It’s a big game this weekend as Cardiff come to the Stadium of Light and there’s an absolutely packed match programme for this vital fixture. 

Gus Poyet, chief executive Margaret Byrne, John O’Shea and Jim Montgomery all eagerly await the clash in their columns while so too do Connor Wickham and Vito Mannone. Connor also reflects on his burst of goals and Vito enjoys his Fans' Player of the Year award.

Red & White has also spoken to Lee Cattermole, Jozy Altidore and Santiago Vergini for this weekend’s issue while Cardiff forward Jordan Mutch and City’s all-time record appearance maker Phil Dwyer provide the visitors’ viewpoint.

The official matchday programme also reveals which pre-war record Sunderland broke with last weekend’s win at Chelsea as part of the in-depth detail supplied by the team who produced the definitive Sunderland Complete Record’.

Veteran journalist Doug Weatherall, now astonishingly in his eighth decade of watching Sunderland, celebrates the club's first ever promotion half a century ago, former Sunderland and Cardiff legends Gary Bennett and Len Ashurst are in the spotlight and there is full coverage of the U18, U21 and Ladies teams.

Last but not least, for the little kid or the big kid in your family there’s a superb double-sided goals poster featuring the Chelsea and Manchester City matches.
