Former Sunderland striker Danny Collins stated that the Black Cats have multiple strikers in their team and that Tony Mowbray needs to get one of them scoring soon.


Sunderland struggled in front of goal last season due to a lack of center-forward alternatives following Ross Stewart’s injury.


The Black Cats sold Ross Stewart this summer and signed in four new players: Mason Burstow, Eliezer Mayenda, Nazariy Rusyn, and Luis Semedo.

Collins feels Sunderland have decent squad depth and that the Black Cats have suitably boosted their striking ranks.

However, none of the new Black Cats centre forward recruits have scored, and Collins believes Mowbray must find a way to persuade them to score.



“I think we have a good bit of strength and depth in the general squad,” Collins told Sunderland’s reporters.


“Obviously, at the top of the pitch, we have three strikers to choose from.”



“We need to get one of them firing.”


Sunderland will face Sheffield Wednesday on Friday, hoping to return to winning ways against Xisco Munoz’s side after their loss to Cardiff City.
