Bolton's FA Cup Third Round match against Sunderland a week from Saturday doesn't sound like a particularly tasty fixture for Whites fans but the Sunderland travelling support seem to be loving it. The Black Cats have officially announced that they have sold out their entire allocation of tickets (just under 5,000) to the Reebok Stadium.
Bolton Wanderers have not managed a win against Sunderland since November of 2008 when they beat them 1-4 at the Stadium of Light. On the score sheet that day for Bolton? Matt Taylor, Gary Cahill, and a Johan Elmander double. Since then, the Trotters have no wins, six losses, and two draws against Sunderland in all competitions. The two sides met in the FA Cup Third Round in 2008/09 as well with Sunderland winning 2-1 at the Stadium of Light on January 3, 2009.
The FA Cup Third Round clash between Bolton Wanderers and Sunderland will kick off on Saturday, January 5, 3 pm at the Reebok Stadium.
