Just a few weeks ago, if you had offered a Sunderland fan an opportunity to finish in a playoff spot at the end of the season, there is a good chance they would have bitten your hand off. After the side drew 0-0 with Bolton on Boxing Day, the was outside of the top-six and winless in their last nine games in all competitions. But now, after winning four from their last five, and on a seven-game unbeaten streak, there is hope once again.

And while before fans were asking if they had a chance at making the playoffs, they are now asking different questions. This week Roker Report asked fans to ‘put their neck on the line’ and state whether they thought automatic promotion was a possibility. While there were some fans who were muting their hope and predicting a playoff fight, others were convinced the would finish in the top two.

Do you think Sunderland will achieve automatic promotion this season?





Some fans even think that the Black Cats will go up as champions.

What do we think?

While the has only just broken into sixth place, the side are only six points off top spot with a game in hand. There is a real possibility that automatic promotion is on the table. But in order for that to happen, Phil must ensure that his team presses forward and keeps their current momentum.
