Player Ratings & Comments: Clean sheet and 3 points make for a fine afternoon for Sunderland

Anthony Patterson's first League start returned as much as you can expect from a goalkeeper, and he is just one of the promising youngsters on display at the Stadium of Light today.

Nine points on the board without reaching the end of August is a tremendous return for a Sunderland side more accustomed to struggling in the early weeks of the season. Let's be honest, it should have been 12 given the number of chances created against Burton and the match today played out, at times, in a similar fashion. 

The Lads were strong in possession and comfortably the better side, but lacked ruthlessness in front of goal. Carl Winchester is an unlikely hero, and his goal was a smidge fortunate thanks to a deflection. Despite that concern, we can laud the defensive display and bask in the glory of another three points.

Now it is your chance to evaluate the player performances in the only interactive post-match feature for Sunderland fans. We include Johnson in the line-up (at the bottom) so you can drop a rating and some comments about the manager too. Sorry we missed the last couple of games - exceptional circumstances taking a grip at WAW towers.

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.
