Sunderland goalkeeper Lee Burge has shared his thoughts following an impressive performance in last-night’s Carabao Cup clash with Sheffield United.
The summer signing made a series of impressive saves as he deputised for Jon McLaughlin, helping his side to a 1-0 win against the Premier League Blades.
After the match he took to Twitter, sharing a photograph of himself celebrating along with the caption: “Going into the next round like…”
Max Power scored the only goal of the match as Ross’ side saw-off Premier League opposition for the second round in a row, this time in the form of Sheffield United.
When the goal came, it was a screamer as well. With a clever corner eventually falling to the midfielder, he took just one touch before arrowing his effort into the top corner.
The Black Cats weathered the late pressure from their top-flight hosts well to pick-up a confidence boosting win, following a couple of poor performances in their League One season.
Ross certainly has a bit of a dilemma on his hands heading into the weekend clash with MK Dons now.
McLaughlin has long been impressive between the sticks and it will have needed a lot to displace him but Burge’s midweek performance may have done just that.
MK Dons at home poses the perfect opportunity for Sunderland to notch a large, confidence boosting win and Ross needs to pick his side on merit.
He may have racked up an important midweek win but a disappointing weekend result will send the mood crashing right back down.
