Allardyce will select from the same squad which lost 1-0 at West Ham on Saturday despite creating a series of chances to get something from the game.

Only midfielder Jeremain Lens, who is recovering from hernia surgery and could return against Southampton at the weekend, and striker Duncan Watmore (ankle ligaments) will be missing.

Allardyce has targeted five wins from his side’s last 11 games as he looks to guide Sunderland to safety between now and May.

He said: “We have got 11 games (left) and we have got to have our best run of the season.

“We have got to pick up five victories if we can, and that’s 38 points – then hope that 38 points is going to be enough again this year.”
