‘Must’ve won a radio competition’ – These Sunderland fans discuss individual’s performance in Gillingham draw

Published

It was a frustrating day for Sunderland on Saturday afternoon, as they were held to a 2-2 by Gillingham at The Stadium of Light.

Things started well for the Black Cats, as they went ahead through Aiden McGeady inside the opening ten minutes, before a long range striker from Alex MacDonald evaded Sunderland ‘keeper Lee Burge to nestle in the bottom corner.

Sunderland then went back in front just before half time, when Grant Leadbitter headed in on the rebound after seeing his penalty saved. However, Gillingham would claim a point in stoppage time, as a ball into the Sunderland box was flicked on Jordan Graham by Vadaine Oliver, with the striker able to round the onrushing Burge before firing into the roof of the empty net.

That result means that Sunderland are now sixth in the League One table, eight points adrift of the automatic promotion places, and taking to Twitter during and after the game, a number of the club’s fans were far from impressed with the performance of Burge for his part in Gillingham’s two goals.

Here, we take a look at what some of those Black Cats supporters had to say about the 28-year-old’s contribution to that game.
