Half-time. The referee has seen enough. It's not been a classic at the Stadium of Light. Goalless at the interval. Wolves are battling away despite a lack of quality. Sunderland just haven't done enough yet. Let's hope for a better second-half.

Thanks for your feedback. The players are coming out of the tunnel so we'll be getting started very soon.
Sunderland welcome back Nicklas Bendtner after a back problem. The striker has four goals in his last six Premier League games.
Connor has certainly switched things around from Wednesday when 10-men Wolves were given the run around by Arsenal. Zubar, Jarvis and Doyle move to the bench, Edwards is injured and Bassong suspended. Young Irish midfielder Anthony Forde comes in for only his third start.
At least fans of both clubs seem to be agreed on the score. Wolves fan Stuart Bowdler says: "Why would you drop Jarvis to the bench? Proves that TC doesn't have a clue!! Prediction lose 3-0."
Sunderland fan Jeff says: "We need to reverse the disappointment of the Everton debacle. I am predicting a 3-0 win for The Mackems with Bendtner scoring & Sessegnon bagging a brace."
Our friends at Sky Bet make Sunderland strong favourites for this one at 1/2. Bottom-club Wolves are 5/1 to win and the draw is available at 17/5.
Sunderland: Mignolet, Bardsley, Turner, Kilgallon, Richardson, Larsson, Colback, Gardner, McClean, Sessegnon, Bendtner. Subs: Westwood, Bridge, Kyrgiakos, Vaughan, Meyler, Campbell, Ji Dong-Won.
Wolves: Hennessey, Foley, Stearman, Berra, Ward, Kightly, Henry, Davis, Forde, Ebanks-Blake, Fletcher. Subs: De Vries, Edwards, Johnson, Jarvis, Jonsson, Zubar, Doyle.
The teams are in and will be up shortly...
Sunderland don't have a great deal to play for but Martin O'Neill is determined for his first season in charge not to end on a flat note and this is a good opportunity for the Black Cats to send the fans home happy.
Wolves need a win here to keep their slim hopes of staying in the Premier League alive. Well, to be honest they probably need five wins out of their last five and it's Manchester City up next... but Terry Connor will be aiming to pick up his first win as boss at the ninth attempt.
