‘Massive respect’, ‘Remarkable’ – Many Sunderland fans laud key figure after Portsmouth win



Sunderland claimed a comprehensive 2-0 win over promotion rivals Portsmouth yesterday and many Black Cats have heaped praise on manager Lee Johnson after the game. 

In-form striker Charlie Wyke powered in a header to put the visitors ahead at Fratton Park after 13 minutes and then Jordan Jones seized on a defensive effort to double the deficit in the second half.

The Black Cats controlled the game against Pompey, who didn’t even muster a shot on target, and claimed all three points to move within just a point of the top two in League One.

Johnson has masterminded a hugely impressive recent run at the North East club since their defeat to Shrewsbury Town in early February.

Sunderland have won eight of their last nine games in all competitions and seven of their last eight in League One – a run that has also seen them keep five clean sheets.

There is a lot of positivity surrounding the club at the moment, particularly after Kyril Louis-Dreyfus’ recent takeover, and the former Bristol City boss has got them flying on the pitch.

Was it Aiden McGeady or Charlie Wyke who have done these 15 things?

Johnson certainly seems to be popular among Black Cats supporters, with many praising him on Twitter after last night’s game.
