Sunderland’s automatic promotion hopes hang by a thread, after the Black Cats were held to a 3-3 draw with Accrington Stanley on Saturday afternoon.
The Black Cats raced into a two-goal lead on the day, as Charlie Wyke hit a brace inside the opening 11 minutes to put Lee Johnson’s side ahead.
Colby Bishop then pulled a goal back for the visitors early in the second-half, before Luke O’Nien scored an own goal to level the scores at the Stadium of Light.
Max Power then put Sunderland back in front, before Sean McConville equalised for Accrington Stanley, as the points were shared, much to the frustration of the Sunderland supporters.
Can you score more than 80% on this 20-question Sunderland quiz?
That result means that the Black Cats are without a win from their last six matches, with Lee Johnson’s side being nine points adrift of second-placed Peterborough United as they head into their final three matches of this year’s campaign.
Plenty of Sunderland supporters took to social media to aim their frustrations towards Johnson after this stalemate.

Take some responsibility man Lee. Stats now show you have a worse points per game than Parky!

If Johnson is such a great coach how can we not defend.
If you not interested in the score great game to watch.
But be honest. How many goals could Accrington have scored. Maybe 6? That's not good enough.#SAFC

We’ve looked so disorganised. Doesn’t reflect well on Johnson at all #SAFC

Not acceptable at all from the players and the manager, to be 2-0 up at HT you need to have a word because this is simply not good enough
