‘Destined for the very top’ – Many Sunderland fans react to one player’s performance in Burton win



Sunderland rounded off an excellent week with a comprehensive victory over rock-bottom Burton Albion on Saturday afternoon.

Lee Johnson’s team thrashed Doncaster last Saturday before booking their place in a second EFL Trophy final in the space of three seasons by defeating Lincoln City on penalties in midweek.

And the Black Cats showed no signs of tiredness as they comfortably dispatched the Brewers to keep their place inside the top-six.

First-half goals from Grant Leadbitter and Lynden Gooch put the visitors in control before Charlie Wyke’s 23rd of the season in all competitions and sixth in three matches earned Johnson’s side three crucial points in their quest for automatic promotion.

Did Kevin Phillips ever score a goal for Sunderland at the Stadium of Light?

But whilst Sunderland were impressive in an attacking sense, the performance of on-loan Wolves Dion Sanderson certainly caught the eye of the Stadium of Light faithful, who’ve been reacting on Twitter to his display at the Pirelli Stadium.

Sanderson has started three of the Black Cats’ previous four matches in all competitions and is doing a stellar job in covering for the injured Jordan Willis and Bailey Wright.
