‘Given Lee Johnson something to think about’ – Many Sunderland fans react to 27-year-old’s display vs Port Vale

Sunderland picked up a much-needed victory as Lee Johnson’s men safely secured their passage into the last eight of the EFL Trophy at the expense of Port Vale on Tuesday evening.

The Stadium of Light outfit have struggled since returning from their break, drawing against both Northampton Town and Hull City.

However, the Black Cats’ attention moved away from their League One promotion battle as they moved one step closer to a third trip to Wembley in three seasons – one of which was a defeat to Portsmouth in the final of this competition two seasons back.

But on this occasion, it was unfamiliar face that set Sunderland on their way to the quarter-finals when former Millwall forward Aiden O’Brien tucked the hosts into an early advantage – just his second goal since making the move from The Den, with the other also coming in the EFL Trophy.
