Sunderland take on Sheffield United looking for their first home win since last December, with their three new players all in line to feature
Welcome to today's live match blog as Sunderland get back to league action following the international break.
A win would be most welcome for Simon Grayson and his troops after two consecutive Championship defeats, but Sheffield United will pose a tough test for the Black Cats.
Sunderland are set to have deadline-day signings Jonny Williams, Callum McManaman and Marc Wilson involved, although Aiden McGeady could miss out through injury.
The Blades could also hand debuts to new signings Clayton Donaldson and Ben Heneghan.
We'll have live updates throughout the afternoon from James Hunter and Stuart Rayner, plus all the post-match reaction and analysis, as Sunderland go looking for their first win since last December.
