After a draw midweek against high flying Peterborough United, Sunderland were in desperate need of a win at Valley Parade.
Sunderland played some excellent football to win 2-1 away at Bradford City on Saturday afternoon.
The lads managed to shoot themselves in the foot and two points went begging thanks to Bryan Oviedo's moment of idiocy against Peterborough.
Another glorious Saturday is nearly upon us and with it comes your weekly dose of League 1 action.
On reflection it was a great game to watch, but Sunderland should have put this game to bed before half time. Yet more desperate performances from fullbacks cost us.
Sunderland travelled to Coventry for Saturday’s early kick off at the Ricoh Arena, backed by 5000 Mackems who’d made the journey.
There was a lot of excitement regarding the Coventry game, with almost 5000 Sunderland fans making the trip to the Midlands - but a pretty poor game of football probably wasn't what they were hoping for. Following a slightly disappointing day, I take a look at the positives that can be taken from our draw with Coventry.
An injured plagued Saturday lunch time draw wasn't what we hoped for after 5k of you lovelies made the way down to the Ricoh Arena (despite the ugly scenes after - hope everyone returns home safely). Here's how the players faired. Let us know who you thought should've been man of the match at the end!
Sunderland responded to their first defeat in the league with aplomb last weekend against a solid Rochdale side.
Sunderland are heading to Coventry this weekend to take on the Sky Blues, followed by a very impressive 5000 fans.
