Sanderson Signs Sunderland blog

Sunderland have started the season looking the part for automatic promotion. Inpregnable in defence, even during a defensive injury crisis, the Lads maintain the only unbeaten record in League One and are two points off top automatic promotion with a game in hand.

Yesterday's win over Crewe was as empathic a 1-0 victory as you'll see. Phil Parkinson will be disappointed his side did not put away three or four more goals, but relieved that the missed opportunities did not cost any points. The clean sheet was great, and another fantastic display from Bailey Wright to marshall an inexperienced defensive unit, but for me the midfield trio of Grant Leadbitter, Josh Scowen and captain Max Power that shone brightest.

Again, as it always is after every league game, it is your opportunity to tell us what you thought of yesterday's performances. We've got some content lined up to feature the comments left today as well as those so far this season as we come to the end of the month.
