Sunderland defender Dion Sanderson has taken to Twitter to send a message to fans after the 1-1 draw with Lincoln City yesterday, with many supporters of the North East club quick to respond.
The Black Cats have stretched their unbeaten run to 11 games and climbed up to third in League One, with the Wolves loanee cementing himself as a key man in their backline.
The central defender joined on loan from the Premier League club in the summer but has taken his game up a level under Lee Johnson’s management.
Callum Morton’s equaliser denied Sunderland all three points after Callum MacFadzean had put the hosts ahead at the Stadium of Light yesterday but Sanderson was still very positive in his message to fans after the game.
Our run continues, we stay positive. Tough game, come away with a point, onto Saturday to bring all 3 back 🔴⚪️Ha’way the lads

The 21-year-old’s deal with Wolves is set to expire next summer, meaning the Molineux outfit could look to cash in on him in the upcoming transfer window.
19 facts you may not know about the Stadium of Light – But are they true?
A recent report has indicated that Sanderson could be sold for £2 million in the summer but it seems the Black Cats face competition, with Bristol City, Huddersfield Town and Sheffield United also linked.
He certainly seems a popular figure at his current club as the responses to his recent message show…
Well said Dion, a point gained today
