Seventh takes on sixth in the Premier League at the Stadium Of Light today and Sunderland are fancied to take all three points . The Black Cats have enjoyed an excellent home record in 2010 and are unbeaten at the Stadium of Light this season with excellent performances against some of the top sides . Craig Gordon will return in goal and Asamoah Gyan will be in contention for a place after recovering from a toe injury . Danny Wellbeck has been very impressive in recent home games however and Gyan may have to settle for a place on the bench . Sunderland are best odds with Paddy Power at 23/20 although better value lies in backing Darren Bent to score the first goal . Bent has already scored ten goals this season and seven of those have come in the Premier League and the England striker notched twenty four Premier League goals last season . Bent is available at 5/1 with Stan James to score the first goal or backers could try a correct score bet with Betfred who will refund all losing correct score and first goalscorer bets if Bent scores the last goal of the match . Bolton will be no pushovers today however and a tough low scoring game is in prospect .
