Saturday's match between Sunderland and Swansea pitches two of the Premier League's most improved sides up against each other.

Saturday's match between Sunderland and Swansea City at the Stadium of Light pitches two of the Premier League's most improved sides against each other.

Martin O'Neill has turned the fortunes of the Black Cats around following his appointment at the end of 2011.

Swansea, who beat Arsenal 3-2 last weekend, could make it three wins in a row with victory on Wearside.

O'Neill could recall Titus Bramble to the Sunderland defence, while Frazer Campbell and Craig Gordan could be welcomed back to the squad after long-term injuries.

Brendan Rodgers has no new injury concerns and is likely to stick with the side that defeated the Gunners.

Current form:

Sunderland: LWDWWL
Swansea: DLDDWW

Possible lineups:

Sunderland: Mignolet; Bardsley, Richardson, Bramble, O'Shea; Cattermole, Larsson, Vaughan, Sessegnon; McClean, Bendtner

Swansea: Vorm; Williams, Taylor, Caulker, Rangel; Britton, Sinclair, Dyer, Allen; Agustien, Graham

Sports Mole says: 2-2
