Sunderland made it two wins from their opening two matches in this year’s League One campaign, as they ran out 2-1 winners over MK Dons on Saturday afternoon.
Ross Stewart opened the scoring for Lee Johnson’s side on the day, before Elliot Embleton doubled that lead just ten minutes later.
Spurs loanee Troy Parrott pulled a goal back for the hosts, but the Black Cats held on to take an important three points from the game.
Embleton caught the eye with a number of impressive performances in a loan spell with Blackpool last season, as the Tangerines won promotion into the Championship.
