‘You’ve had warning signs’ – Many Sunderland fans react to latest manager reflection

Sunderland boss Phil Parkinson has demanded a response from his players after their weekend defeat at Coventry City, as reported by the club’s official site.

Matt Godden scored the only goal of the game in the second minute, denting Sunderland’s hopes of a return to the Championship. The Sky Blues went top of the league with the win, opening up a gap of six points between them and the Black Cats.

The former Bolton boss admitted his team lacked something at key moments during the encounter.

“I thought we gave our all but just lacked that little bit of composure at times in the heat of the battle,” he said.

“Some of our play and performances have been excellent, but on Sunday we weren’t quite on the ball as we have been. We have a very honest group of players and now it is about getting back to work this week and looking at things we can do better.”

They face Steve Evans’ Gillingham this week, a side who saw a 15-game unbeaten run brought to an end with a home defeat by Wimbledon, a game Sunderland fans will be hopeful of coming out on the right side of.

Despite their good run, these fans are not entirely happy with Parkinson or Sunderland, highlighting the high standards they have on Wearside at the moment.
