A goal-of-the-season contender from Grant Leadbitter was not enough to secure three points for Sunderland.

The goal ended a first half that was completed dominated by the away-side. Doncaster mustered a solitary shot off target whilst the Lads took aim nine times during the same period whilst controlling the majorty of the play.

In keeping with recent performances, Sunderland invited pressure in the second period and there was a clear shift in dominance towards the homeside. A lack of tactical flexibility allowed Doncaster to continue getting closer and, despite a decent cameo from Elliott Embleton (the first Sunderland substitution after 82 minutes), the homeside found their equaliser.

That makes it five points dropped from winning positions, points that would have Sunderland level on points with Hull City in first place, but now languishing in 8th place. There is very much a Jack Ross feel about the club at the moment, a manager who was sacked in a better league position and with a better record.

Last week in the defeat to MK Dons our readers were less than complimentary of the Lads' performance, with Remi Matthews voted man of the match with a rating of just 5.7, and a whopping 354 comments left! You can have you say below;
