Sunderland are still in control of their own destiny in League One, but desperately need a big display against Doncaster on Good Friday to keep it that way.
The Black Cats have stuttered in back-to-back home games as they drew with Burton and were on the wrong end of wild 5-4 thriller against Coventry.
Jack Ross could be tempted to shake-up his defence following the displays of central defensive partners Jack Baldwin and Tom Flanagan last weekend.
It was only Sunderland’s third league defeat of the campaign, but it couldn’t have come at a worse time with Portsmouth now level on points with the Black Cats.
Sunderland sit in third with Pompey in fourth, while Barnsley are two points ahead of both sides though they have played an extra game.
Doncaster are the next side to trek north to the Stadium of Light.
Rovers have won four in a row to establish themselves in the play-off places and will not take their foot off the gas during Friday’s showdown.

Who will win? RadioTimes.com says…
Sunderland are a team of two halves – they have scored goals with ease all season, but are not without major defensive concerns.
Ross won’t allow Saturday’s collapse to happen again, so expect a much tighter display to strengthen fading confidence, and have been known to produce some excellent backlash displays this season.
However, Doncaster also have a lot to fight for and will be a tough nut to crack on Wearside.
Prediction: Sunderland 1-1 Doncaster
