Many Sunderland fans have taken to Twitter to react to their side’s 2-1 away win over Lincoln City in the Papa John’s Trophy.
The Black Cats made a host of expected changes for the game and put themselves in complete control of the contest thanks to goals from Dan Neil and Stephen Wearne, before Lewis Montsma got a late consolation for the home side in stoppage time.
This win on the road should give the team confidence heading into their next run of league fixtures, as they quickly bounced back from last weekend’s shock 4-0 hammering to Portsmouth at Fratton Park in Sky Bet League One.
Naturally it didn’t take long for the Sunderland faithful to react to their team’s result last night, with many taking to social media to air their views on what they saw during the game.

Well done lads. Great result considering how many youth players were involved PLUS we had to contain The King too! Which we did.

Excellent night. Even me old mate O’Brien played well. Neil outstanding. Few of the young’uns gave good accounts of themselves. Only slights were injury to O’Nien which was hopefully just winded and would like to see more from Pritchard https://t.co/sOQXbUimNw
