Sunderland AFC vs Bristol Rovers [15:00 BST]

The Black Cats get their promotion bid under way at an empty Stadium of Light today, in what could be the perfect start to the season.

A repeat of last season's 3-0 win over the Gas will do very nicely, and after Tuesday night's 8-1 thrashing of Aston Villa U21s, Phil Parkinson's side will be in confident mood.

Sunderland are set to sign former Hartlepool United midfielder Josh Hawkes, according to reports.

The 21-year-old, who left Pools at the end of last season, has had a number of admirers in the EFL.

But various reports now claim it’s Sunderland who have won the race for his signature - with Hawkes set to team-up with the club’s under-23 side.

The pre-match thoughts from the Bristol Rovers camp:
Sunderland are a very good team, they have a good squad and are a huge club in the division. They play with very good intensity and we know that second balls are going to be very important tomorrow and being able to control those at both ends of the pitch are going to be a key part of the game. We’ve prepared as fully as we can we’re looking forward to the challenge. For a first league game, it’s a great game and one that you look forward to. The players are all in a good place and looking forward to the challenge
