‘Our strongest team’ – These Sunderland fans react as Ross makes changes despite weekend win



Sunderland are looking for a fifth win in six league games tonight when they host Rotherham at the Stadium of Light.

Jack Ross’ side recorded a relatively comfortable success at Accrington Stanley last time out, yet the manager has made two changes for the visit of the Millers.

Right-back Conor McLaughlin is back in the XI, along with former Hibs midfielder Dylan McGeouch, with the Black Cats going with what looks to be a 4-3-3 formation tonight, as Luke O’Nien pushes into midfield.

Experienced pair Grant Leadbitter and Chris Maguire are the ones to drop out, with the duo on the bench. They are joined by target man Charlie Wyke who is available for selection again after missing the weekend victory through suspension.

It’s fair to say there was a mixed reaction to the team news, with many behind the decision to push O’Nien further up the pitch. However, some felt Maguire, who has four goals this season, shouldn’t have been dropped.

Here’s some of the responses from Twitter to the XI…
