Sunderland were relegated to England’s third tier for the first time in 30 years on Saturday as the Championship’s bottom club lost 2-1 to fellow strugglers Burton.

Chris Coleman’s side have crashed into League One only a year after being relegated from the Premier League.

They have played only one season outside the top two tiers of English football in their entire history, winning promotion from the old Third Division in 1987-88.

Sunderland are six points from safety with only two matches left and the remaining fixtures of their relegation rivals make it mathematically impossible to avoid the drop.
