Sunderland were handed their first defeat of the season by Burton Albion last night and many Black Cats fans have been left frustrated at Aiden McGeady after he squandered a chance to take the lead in the first half. 

Lee Johnson’s side travelled to the Pirelli Stadium having won all of their first three games of the season but came unstuck against the Brewers, with Jonny Smith’s curled 66th-minute strike proving the difference.

Sunderland could and perhaps should have already been in the lead at that point with McGeady missing a number of chances to put his side one up in the first half.

After 12 minutes, the 35-year-old raced through on goal all on his own but tried to be too clever and his chipped effort was palmed away by Burton goalkeeper Ben Garratt.

The Irishman had a trickier chance later in the half when a slick bit of passing saw him tear into the box but his low strike was once again denied by Garratt.
