What Next For The Black Cats — Sunderland Relegated

Confirmed Sunderland lose to Burton and are relegated to League One

That result ultimately sealed Sunderland's fate, with the Tyne and Wear side dropping down to League One.

Sunderland boss Chris Coleman apologises to the club's fanbase after being relegated into League One courtesy of a late 2-1 defeat at home to Burton Albion.

"I don't know where this club goes".

That's because Burton's fixture against fourth-bottom Bolton next weekend means one of those teams will have at least 41 points - one more than the maximum of 40 the Black Cats can get.

Owner Ellis Short has placed the club up for sale and offered to give it away free in exchange for taking on the club's debt - but, despite rumours of interest, no concrete takeover plans have been made public.

Sunderland's relegation could hardly have been picked up in any harsher circumstances. We have been looking in terms of recruitment and players.

"As we look at how to best achieve this, it must be recognised that we are in a period of uncertainty in relation to the club's future ownership and the resolution of this will be the driving factor in how we move forward".

Quiet to finish the weekend; rain returns next week
Areas of rain are scheduled to begin morning Monday and then continue at times through at least Tuesday . Once we hit Thursday , we'll be completely rain-free and sunny again which will last into next weekend.

27,514 - average home league attendance this season.

"Whatever was needed I never brought it", he added. We had a lot of games to get it right.

"We began the campaign realistic in the knowledge that with the backdrop of relegation from the Premier League and our financial position, it would be a significant challenge to make an immediate return to the top flight", it said.

"In my managerial career this is as bad as it's been".

To compound matters, it was former Sunderland player Darren Bent who netted the equaliser for relegation-threatened Burton.

Burton, who beat Derby in their last game, also needed a win and there was a very tentative opening, with neither goalkeeper having really unsafe shots on their goal to deal with. It was the last chance to get themselves out of the unprecedented muddle they are in.

The last three matches in particular sum up the season for Sunderland, with Chris Coleman's team drawing the match after being in a winning position. Our record - points, goals, wins - speaks for itself'. We know where we are now and we have to say "that's happened, this is the plan". If we can take it to the last day anything can happen.
