O'Neill expects tough evening ahead

Sunderland Football Club expects tonight's FA Cup 3rd Round replay against Bolton Wanderers to go ahead despite the bad weather.

The club say the pitch at the Stadium of Light is in good condition, but they are advising fans to allow extra time to travel to the game.

The winners of tonight's replay will earn a home tie against Everton in the fourth round.

Sunderland are favourites, having fought back from two goals down in the original tie at Bolton ten days ago, but Martin O'Neill still expects a tough evening ahead of them.
