Player Ratings & Comments - First senior start, first senior goal, the Lads win again

Another win and, more astonishingly, another clean sheet. That's four wins in five games with a clean sheet featuring in all of those victories. Championship, anyone?

Our recent run of form is more remarkable given that injuries are forcing Lee Johnson to change his defence every week. Ollie Younger earned his first league start and was assured in his 52-minute appearance which helped the Lads notch another clean sheet. Another first was Dion Sanderson's early opener, his first senior career goal before Charlie Wyke continue his blistering form with the second.

Peterborough's defeat means Sunderland are just five points off top spot. It also means we boast the best defensive record in the league. We still have to play all three of the teams above us and we are the form team at the right time. It is weird going into matches thinking we will win rather than we might win, which has been the general feeling since we were relegated into League One.

Now it is your chance to evaluate the player performances in the only interactive post-match feature for Sunderland fans. It's easy to take part, just scroll down and select a rating for each player. Once you do that, you'll notice a comments box pop up which you can use to tell us more about what you thought of that player. Your comments, and ratings, will feature in our round up feature which you can see the latest of here from the Crewe game.
