Sunderland fans certainly have a sense of humour. after all, even with the recent upturn in fortunes, they need one.
They came off the back of a 4-0 win against Lincoln City looking like a team in form, but their Covid-hit squad were forced to play out a draw with strugglers Wimbledon. They have then been forced into a break whilst others have not, which has resulted in them dropping to 11th in the table, 12 points and four wins behind the leaders.
They marked their return to action with a drab goalless League One draw at Sixfields. Max Power drew a save from Jonathan Mitchell midway through the half but the visitors created very little in a dour first half. Charlie Wyke scooped the best chance of the game over the crossbar in the second half, but in truth, it wasn’t a good performance.
With other teams above them not playing, it represented a good chance to catch up some points, a chance missed in many fan’s eyes. Considering Lincoln City, the side dismantled with ease in December, won 4-0 at Sixfields just before Christmas, it was a frustrating chance missed.
Despite that, the eternally upbeat official club media posted the highlights of the game for supporters to enjoy yesterday, and that drew the acerbic comments from supporters. Let’s be honest, a 0-0 draw at Northampton can never really be described as a good result and given there were no goals, any reel of action can only loosely be described as highlights.
That is certainly what this lot thought.
