Former Manchester United defender Wes Brown saw his third red card of the season in the fourth minute and his teammates couldn't make up for his absence losing 2-0 to visiting Hull City.
Sunderland would have been hoping to capitalize on improved form and a home match against a middling team in Hull City. Unfortunately for Gus Poyet's men, the script didn't go they way they'd hoped with Wes Brown going off in the fourth minute. Hull City proceeded to make easy work of the Black Cats with Shane Long and Nikica Jelavic scoring for the three away points. Feb 8 - 12:46 PM

Sunderland head into Christmas bottom of the Premier League after a scrappy goalless draw with Norwich at the Stadium of Light.

Wes Brown went closest for Sunderland, his header hitting the post after a scramble, but in truth there were few chances for the home side. To make matters worse, Brown jumped into a challenge on Ricky van Wolfswinkel in the dying minutes, earning himself a red card. There is very little chance this one is rescinded so he's set for a three-game Christmas and New Year ban. The Black Cats are five points from safety, rock bottom of the Premier League.

Sunderland's Wes Brown has had his red card for a tackle on Stoke's Charlie Adam during Saturday 2-0 defeat overturned by the Football Association.

An inevitable decision from the FA, as Brown's tackle was clean and fair. The referee's poor decision gave Sunderland very little chance of getting back in to the game as they were already 1-0 at the time, and they conceded a second while chasing the game. The only comfort is that they can now call on Brown for their game at Aston Villa in Week 13.

Wes Brown was controversially sent off as Sunderland were defeated 2-0 by Stoke City.

If you follow the Metro link below you can view the tackle that Brown was sent off for - a clean and fair tackle on Charlie Adam. The defender can expect to have the card rescinded, but it will be too late for Sunderland. Poyet's men were already one goal down before the red card and conceded a second while chasing the game. They fall to the bottom of the Premier League table.

Gus Poyet is likely to name the same side that beat Manchester City 1-0 against fourth-bottom Stoke City.

If Poyet does as expected then Wes Brown will partner John O'Shea again. The team in full would be: Mannone, Celustka, Bardsley, Brown, O'Shea, Ki, Larsson, Colback, Johnson, Giaccherini, Fletcher

Winger Adam Johnson says Wes Brown's return from two years of injury has been key to Sunderland's recent form.

Brown has been magnificent in Sunderland's past two games and it has shown in his fantasy production in the Yahoo game, returning 27 points in those two appearances. He was key to the clean sheet kept against Manchester City and should find himself as a regular starter in the league - provided he can stay fit.

Wes Brown is hoping to step up his return from injury by starting Sunderland's Capital One Cup clash with Southampton on Wednesday with an aim of breaking back in to the first team.

It seems unlikely that 34-year-old Brown is the answer to Sunderland's problems. It's possible that his experience could help as Gus Poyet tries to get the team out of the relegation zone, but it's probably not a good idea to be selecting any Black Cat defenders in your fantasy team for the foreseeable future.

Sunderland boss Gus Poyet has hinted he is considering turning to Wes Brown to shore up his side's defence for this weekend's Wear-Tyne derby.

Sunderland are in terrible trouble, rooted to the foot of the table with a solitary point having conceded 20 goals in 8 matches, and it seems unlikely that 34-year-old Brown is the answer to the team's problems. If he does come in he could replace Valentin Roberge, who had a poor game against Swansea, but it's probably not a good idea to be selecting any Black Cat defenders in your fantasy team for the foreseeable future.

Sunderland winger Adam Johnson has described defender Wes Brown's return to first-team action this summer as being "like a new signing".

It's hard not to feel pleased for Brown, who has been receiving glowing reports regarding his performances in training and in pre-season matches. The 33-year old has not featured for the Black Cats since January 2012 because of a recurring knee injury but is seemingly over his problems and will provide Paolo Di Canio with vital Premier League experience at the back for the coming season.
