Player Ratings & Comments - Sunderland win at Wembley as the lads bring home the Pizza Trophy!

'It's only the EFL Trophy' isn't the point, this felt like a cornerstone moment in the history of Sunderland AFC as we embraced a new era of success. If we follow this up with promotion, this game will mark the moment the club's fortunes changed.

The match was a drab affair with a dogged Tranmere side making life difficult for Sunderland up front whilst causing some problems out wide. Lee Burge had a couple of saves to make, though perhaps none particularly strenuous and it was a moment of brilliance that decided the game. Aiden McGeady's sublime through ball set up Lynden Gooch, who finished emphatically to ensure Sunderland won their first game at Wembley since 1973 after 9 attempts.

It was glorious to watch as it was miserable. To witness the Lads lift a trophy at Wembley and not be there in person to go mental is something I can't comprehend.
