Sunderland missed the opportunity to climb into the top-six for the first time since November following defeat to Plymouth on Tuesday night.

Lee Johnson’s team were on a seven-match unbeaten run in all competitions, but were defeated by a team that had previously been winless on the road in League One.

Aiden O’Brien’s glancing second-half header, his first league goal for the Black Cats, had cancelled out Adam Lewis’ early opener, but Joe Edwards put Plymouth back ahead just before the hour mark with an excellent finish into the top-corner.

The result saw Sunderland drop back down to 9th in the table, and leaves the North East outfit without a home league victory since beating Ipswich at the beginning of November, although they’ll be hoping to set the records straight when they host Shrewsbury Town on Saturday.

Captain Max Power spoke to Sunderland’s social channels after the game, and you can see how the Stadium of Light faithful have been reacting on Twitter to his post-match comments.
