Gus Poyet wants Sunderland to learn from their errors against QPR

Sunderland head coach Gus Poyet faces a series of difficult decisions ahead of Saturday's Barclays Premier League trip to Burnley.

The Uruguayan has no significant injury doubts as he looks for a first league win of the campaign and, as a result, needs to decide whether or not to change the side which started last Saturday's 2-2 draw with Tottenham.

Defender Billy Jones and midfielders Will Buckley and Jordi Gomez are among those men pushing for starting berths, although Poyet has indicated striker Connor Wickham, who was effective as a lone striker last weekend, will retain the role.

Provisional squad: Mannone, Pantilimon, Jones, Van Aanholt, Brown, O'Shea, Vergini, Coates, Roberge, Cattermole, Bridcutt, Rodwell, Gomez, Larsson, Johnson, Buckley, Giaccherini, Alvarez, Mavrias, Wickham, Fletcher, Altidore, Graham.
