Sunderland's first defeat since the beginning of February came at the hands of Charlton who have done their best to, once again, scupper the Lads' promotion push. It's Player Ratings & Comments!
Charlton are the visitors to the Stadium of Light this weekend and Nigel Adkins’ side trail sixth placed Lincoln by 3 points and 10 goals. Sunderland are looking to maintain their form and the relentless pressure which is being applied to Hull and Peterborough as they chase automatic promotion.
Another midweek with no Sunderland game, it feels so unusual right now. Not to worry - Quiz of the Week is back on a Thursday to help bridge the gap!
On Monday afternoon, the points were shared at the London Road Stadium. It took 66 minutes for the Posh to make the breakthrough in the 66th minute. Sunderland replied in the 80th minute from an Aiden McGeady freekick as the game ended 1-1.
So here it was, the first of our two supposed “biggest” games of the season and I had to take a pre-game nap to avoid overthinking and getting nervous about it; I might have to make those siestas on 8 more occasions this season as they are all big games, aren’t they? In fact, I’m tired now thinking about it.
Aiden McGeady turned 35 at the weekend. To mark the occasion, the Irishman hit a superb freekick to rescue a point at Peterborough to keep the momentum behind Sunderland’s promotion charge.
Aiden McGeady is turning up when Sunderland need him most. After scoring the crucial second goal against Oxford in the 81st minute on Friday, he equalised in the 81st minute today to ensure the Lads don't lose ground on automatic promotion. It's time for Player Ratings & Comments.
Sunderland travel to the Weston Homes Stadium to play on one of the shabbiest pitches in the league. Both sides are chasing automatic promotion and many are viewing this fixture as a 6 pointer. In reality the outcome of this game won’t decide who finishes in the top two, but it’ll certainly have huge impact on confidence for players and fans alike. It’s a top of the table clash between two of the best sides in the league, let’s have little look at what’s going on.
Reports suggest Didier Ndong has gone missing yet again. It's hardly the first time the Sunderland record signing has disappeared.
Since it's Easter and we had a game yesterday, we moved Quiz of the Week to today.
