Leadbitter goal Portsmouth Sunderland blog

Charlie Wyke's early goal - his third in four games - was cancelled out before half time, but second half controversy swung Sunderland's way to allow a crucial win against close promotion rivals Ipswich. A red card to midfielder Andre Dozzell, followed by a Sunderland penalty capped off an improved second half performance that ended in victory.

The last four games have been a rest of character for the Lads after a disappointing defeat to Portsmouth and an unflattering draw against Rochdale. The win over Gillingham was hard-fought, but it is a run of games capped off with an excellent win. I wrote earlier today about Phil Parkinson's Sunderland record, which has been coming under increased scrutiny as questions are asked over the quality of SAFC performances.

But what did you make of the performance? This won't impact our review of September / October ratings starting tomorrow, but all ratings and comments will help with November's content and help decide November's Player of the Month.
