Sunderland remain five points above seventh but that cushion could quickly disappear if their bad form continues while going into the play-offs in such poor touch is a concern in itself.

Johnson took charge in December after the sacking of Phil Parkinson and led the side on an outstanding run between January and April, which saw them snapping at the heels of the top two and win the EFL Trophy.
