A home defeat and a red card, as far as a bump back down to earth goes

Wyke goal Portsmouth Sunderland blog

 

Portsmouth tend to bring the worst out of us, and yesterday we saw more defensive mistakes than we have all season. Unfortunately, going forward the Lads still haven't found a good enough formula to score consistently, only managing one goal in reply to Portsmouth's three.

A red card for the ever-enthusiastic Luke O'Nien did nothing to help the worrying shortage at the back, particularly with Jordan Willis looking off-the-pace after missing the win over Crewe with injury. New signing Dion Sanderson didn't make the bench, whilst Tom Flanagan presumably still isn't deemed fit enough to start - unless it was a poor tactical decision by Phil Parkinson to leave him out of the side. 

The game against Rochdale comes in just three days and we need an immediate reply to prevent our promotion charge derailing so early in the season. For now though, it's time to tell us what you thought of the players once more! Our Player of the Season so far piece is on the horizon for end of October, so everything you leave counts and we really appreciate it!
