Sunderland had to look at a home game against Burnley as a chance to earn three much-needed points, but the Black Cats failed to find the finishing touch and played to a 0-0 draw.
There was absolutely nothing to speak of for Sunderland in terms of attack in the first half of this one, they barely found themselves in Burnley's final third. With the game still goalless at the break, Sunderland were able to put together a flurry of activity early in the second half, but they failed to convert their chances. The most frustrating opportunity squandered came when Seb Larsson lobbed a pinpoint cross to a wide open Billy Jones at the back post but Jones somehow missed a wide open target. Entering the final ten weeks of the season, the Cats may have dropped two crucial points today, but they have chiseled out a reputation for magical end-of-season runs to survive the drop.

Sunderland's Billy Jones is sidelined by a hamstring injury for the opening match against West Brom.

Signing Jones was one of Sunderland's best pieces of business over the summer, but the right-back will miss out on making his debut against his former side in Week 1 due to a hamstring injury. Santiago Vergini could slot in in his place. Winger Emanuele Giaccherini also misses out with a groin injury.

Sunderland have sealed the signing of West Brom defender Billy Jones on a free transfer after he rejected a new deal at the Hawthorns.

Losing Jones on a free transfer is a blow for West Brom, but a terrific bit of business by Sunderland. The right-back has been one of the Baggies outstanding performers over the past two seasons, but having been unable to agree terms on a new deal, the 27 year old allowed his contract to run down. Jones has agreed a four-year deal, officially joining the Black Cats on 1 July, and will be expected to replace the outgoing Phil Bardlsey (on his way to Stoke) in starting XI next season.

Billy Jones' return against Fulham was short lived as he exited just before the half and has been ruled out for the next month with a hamstring injury.

With the club only a point out of the relegation zone, news comes that West Brom will be without Billy Jones for the month of March. Judging from what happened earlier in the season - and as recently as a few weeks ago against Chelsea - Steven Reid is likely to deputize for Jones as the Baggies fight to stay up in the Premier League another year.

Billy Jones, who has made West Brom's right-back spot his own this season, is out for an indefinite time with a hamstring injury he picked up against Crystal Palace.

Steven Reid will likely deputize for Jones, but this certainly doesn't help their preparations to play Chelsea this weekend.
