'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Know Your Enemy - Defence

RB: Nyron Nosworthy or Dean Whitehead

Nosworthy was a running joke during Sunderland`s 15 point season. Our six a side team regularly used 'he`s having a Nyron` as a summary for our half arsed midfield players. However this season he seems to have upped his game a little, drawing praise even from King Al early in the season. The blokes certainly better than Greg Halford which is a pity. Hopefully N`Zogbia will torture him come Saturday though.

Whitehead made his comeback in midweek v some Durham league reserve team. Hopefully Keane will gamble on his fitness due to the fact he`s captain. However he`s been out the best part of three months so it`ll be more likely to see him on the bench.

CH: Paul McShane / Danny Higginbotham

McShane has been arguably the mackems` best player this season, giving some reasonable performances at the back and being missed badly when suspended. Not bad for a guy with a haircut like an orang-utan. Came from West Brom but I`ve a sneaky feeling he was at Man Yoo when Keane was there.

Higginbotham is another ex-Manc, having been shipped around relegation strugglers and Championship promotion teams. Experienced but limited. Signed for the same amount we bought Rozenhal for which is a bit of an eye-opener. Banned for a year for kicking a refs heed in whilst on loan in Belgium.

LB: Ian Harte

Has notched previously against us whilst at Leeds but generally ended up on the losing side after being done for pace by Solano and Dyer. Hopefully more of the same on Saturday from Milner. Useful from dead ball situations too so no stupid free kicks around the box please lads.

this is probably their strongest link in the team, their defence is more capable than anywhere else
