Sunderland failed to capitalise last night as they were held to a 2-2 draw by Accrington Stanley at the Stadium of Light.
The Black Cats fought back from two goals down though, and it could well be seen as a point gained rather than points lost come the end of the season.
Goals from George Honeyman and Aiden McGeady rescued the draw for Jack Ross’ men, who now sit three points behind second placed Barnsley with no games in hand to cash in on as it stands.
The performance, while good in terms of a comeback, was not ideal from the Black Cats, and the Sunderland fans themselves seemed less than impressed with the way manager Jack Ross had set his team up last night.
We at FLW always love to see what the Sunderland fans have got to say, and we took to Twitter to check out just what the Black Cats fans had to say about last night’s result…
Jack Ross’ team selection and defensive set up is killing us! ????

Don’t like to make excuses. But that ref was ridiculous. The ball was out of play for 13 minutes. Why so little added time ?

Ref was a joke but doesn’t rake away from our poor performance. We might have salvaged a point but ‘salvaged’ is what we did ???? Questioning Ross’s selection again!

The only good thing that came from that is the 442 brigade can keep well and truly quiet from now on

Comeback or not. That is still not enough, I can personally see us being down here again next season. Simply not good enough. Still though #HawayTheLads
