The Newcastle v Sunderland Tyne-Wear derbies are matches that supporters of both sides look forward to each season as the bragging rights look to be won. Looking at the League table there isn't a great deal between the clubs but they will both be looking for these rights to say that there is!
Steven Taylor knows how much these matches mean and he wants the Toon to win for the fans to compensate for what has been an otherwise bitterly disappointing season: 'The fans definitely deserve a little present from us,' Taylor told the media. 'We need to send them home happy and that would be a lift for the city as well.
'They've been very frustrated this season, because it's been difficult, but they've stood behind us. A win against Sunderland would top it off.
'I'll definitely be telling the foreign lads what the Sunderland game means to the club, although I don't think I'll really need to do that.'
Sunderland fans will be pleased with their season so far, survival has been their priority, and they are inching ever closer to this. However a struggling Toon side (that is on the up now) will be hoping to push them further back, victory for either will mean so much but who will have the upper hand?
Earlier in the season they played out a 1-1 draw but its advantage to this Sunday's winners this summer!
