‘Massive hit that’, ‘Been immense’ – Many Sunderland fans react to player update



Sunderland have today announced via Twitter that defender Dion Sanderson is likely to miss the rest of the season through injury after Lee Johnson confirmed the news. 

The 21-year-old has been almost ever present for the Black Cats this term since arriving on loan from Wolves and became a key player under Johnson since the former Bristol City boss took over the top job at the Stadium of Light.

However Sanderson has now been ruled out for up to six weeks with a back injury, meaning that his loan spell in the North East appears set to end prematurely as the League One side continue to battle for a play-off place.

Naturally the news of the injury spread fast throughout the Sunderland faithful, with many taking to social media to air their views on the youngster being sidelined for a lengthy period.
