Lee Johnson earned his first victory since becoming Sunderland boss after seeing his side come from behind to progress in the EFL Trophy on Tuesday night.
The former Bristol City manager replaced Phil Parkinson and was at the Stadium of Light to see the Black Cats lose to Wigan at the weekend.
Just three days later, Johnson was back in the dugout at Boundary Park, although the 39-year-old would have been concerned after seeing Bobby Grant give Oldham a 13th-minute lead.
However, goals from Chris Maguire and Josh Scowen either side of half-time sent the Stadium of Light outfit through to the Last 16 of the competition for the first time since they were beaten by Portsmouth in the final two seasons ago.
Quiz: Which club did Sunderland sign each of these 25 players from?
When speaking to the club’s official social accounts after the victory, Johnson admitted that promotion is clearly the priority for the Black Cats, but was happy to get off the mark as Sunderland manager, regardless of the competition.
And here, we’ve been looking at how the Stadium of Light faithful have been reacting to Johnson’s post-match quotes, and the general response was a positive one.

Engaging, motivational, positive but also realistic and honest. Think this lad will turn out to be a very good appointment

I like this lad. Talks a lot of sense and doesn't hide behind the fact we have lots to do. Refreshing to hear that since the last twat we had in charge didn't seem to have a clue. What Lee Johnson considers a lot of work to do, Parkinson was content with it seemed! #Standards

Great game tonight. I'm really like Lee Johnson, as I said Johnson or Stendel I would have had as managers & we've got Johnson. At least there is no Parkinson's disease in the club anymore. Not only was Parkinson's disease football so bad but he also did not like talented players

Great interview, very impressed with how he's spoken so far, very honest with everything and doesn't try and pull the wool over our eyes!
