‘Shocking’, ‘Awful’ – Plenty of Sunderland fans are furious after dismal showing in defeat to Portsmouth

Published

Sunderland suffered their first league defeat of the 2020/21 season, after they were beaten 3-1 by Portsmouth at the Stadium of Light. 

Kenny Jackett’s side took the lead on the day through Marcus Harness, but the hosts responded quickly, with Charlie Wyke firing home from close-range.

But Sunderland couldn’t take the chances that came their way in the second-half, as John Marquis capitalised on a mistake from Grant Leadbitter to put Pompey back in front.

Luke O’Nien was then shown his marching orders late into the game, after he gave away a penalty to receive his second bookable offence.

Marquis despatched the penalty to see Portsmouth pick up an impressive win on the day as they moved up to fifth in the League One table.

Sunderland are now sat sixth in the third-tier standings after this frustrating defeat, and will be hoping to get back to winning ways at the earliest of opportunities, starting with a positive result against Rochdale on Tuesday.

Plenty of Sunderland supporters took to social media to issue their thoughts on their first league defeat of the season.

Take a look at the best of the reaction from Twitter below….
