Sunderland showed massive improvement a week on from the opening day disappointing draw against Bristol Rovers.
How much has changed since we last saw a competitive league game play out at the Stadium of Light? Based purely on what happened on the pitch today, absolutely nothing.

Are Sunderland going up...?
No stopping us right now!
Another home win! Get in!
