‘Excited for the future’ – Many Sunderland fans react to Lee Johnson’s post-match comments

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.

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.
