Joey Barton's pre-match view will surprise Sunderland supporters ahead of Fleetwood Town clash
Joey Barton says Sunderland are the 'best side' Fleetwood Town have faced at Highbury - and claims it won't be a disaster if they lose at the Stadium of Light.
“Sunderland are a top side, I think they are the best side we’ve played here.
“We struggled to break them down in both games but it’s a free game for us.
“We’ve taken 15 points out of 15, and even if we lose at Sunderland it isn’t the end of the world.”
