‘I’m convinced’, ‘100% behind him’ – Some Sunderland fans deliver Lee Johnson verdict following play-off heartache against Lincoln City

Almost 10,000 Sunderland supporters were left devastated following their play-off semi-final defeat to Lincoln City.

Despite winning 2-1 at the Stadium Of Light, the Black Cats fell just short over two legs which means that it’ll be the Imps who will travel to Wembley to take on Blackpool in the play-off final next weekend.

While fans will no doubt be gutted about the way that the season has ended, no one will be more disappointed than Lee Johnson.

The head coach oversaw a dramatic improvement in the club’s fortunes since taking charge in early December – a time when the club were sitting closer to a mid-table spot in League One.

Results in recent weeks were enough to see them fall away from the automatic promotion race, while they didn’t quite do enough against Lincoln to thrive in the play-offs, but supporters are generally backing Johnson to be a success next term.
