Wigan defeat Sunderland blog

Johnson opted for a much different starting eleven after defeat to Charlton at the weekend. The long awaited returns of Bailey Wright and Denver Hume made Sunderland's defence look more imperious, but we let ourselves down across the park against a poor Wigan side.

Despite Aiden McGeady providing once again for Charlie Wyke to open the scoring, Sunderland might have conceded two in the remaining 13 minutes of the first half, but Wigan had to settle for just one. Things didn't get much better, and the homeside got their deserved winner in the 58th minute.

We are now five points adrift of automatic promotion with six games left. Tough games against Blackpool (twice) and Hull make winning out all the more difficult, something that feels necessary if we are to avoid the playoffs - but even that may not be enough.

Now it is your chance to evaluate the player performances in the only interactive post-match feature for Sunderland fans. We've continued to include Lee Johnson to the line-up (at the bottom) so you can drop a rating and some comments about the manager too.

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 Charlton game.
