The Black Cats, who have now failed to score a first-half goal in their last five matches, have yet to register a shot on target today.

In fact, Ryan Shawcross is the only player that has hit the target so far.

The Potters captain forced a decent save out of Simon Mignolet from close range on 22 minutes, after the Belgian stopper had punched away Charlie Adam's whipped free kick.
