It was December 1979 when Shrewsbury Town and Sunderland first locked horns. The two sides were in the Second Division at the time and it was The Black Cats who secured a 2-1 triumph at Roker Park.

That set the tone for this rivalry, as the Wearsiders have dominated the head-to-head ever since. Indeed, Sunderland even managed to avoid defeat in their first 11 matches against The Shrews, winning eight and drawing three between 1979 and 2018. The Shropshire-based outfit finally earned a victory in October 2019, claiming a 1-0 success at the New Meadow.
