Johnson was in charge for last Saturday’s defeat to Wigan, although the Black Cats boss had little time to prepare following his appointment hours before the game.

The damage was done inside the opening 42 minutes as Grant Leadbitter, Charlie Wyke and Jack Diamond put Sunderland into an unassailable half-time lead against their fellow promotion hopefuls.
