‘Fantastic’, ‘He had no right’ – Many Sunderland fans react to key moment



Many Sunderland fans have taken to Twitter to react to Ron-Thorben Hoffmann’s important save in their 2-1 away victory over Gillingham. 

The Black Cats initially fell behind at Priestfield when Danny Lloyd scored from the spot from the Gills after Luke O’Nien had tripped Stuart O’Keefe in the penalty box.

However goals from Aiden O’Brien and Tom Flanagan turned the match on its head prior to the hour mark, with the away side being forced to hold onto their lead towards the end of the game after Elliot Embleton was sent off for a poor tackle on Gillingham’s Jack Tucker.

And Sunderland certainly had Hoffmann to thank for preserving their lead, with the German doing superbly well to save a late Robbie McKenzie header, when the full back’s effort look destined for the net.

Have Sunderland had a higher or lower average attendance compared to these 23 sides this season?
