‘Shocking today’ – Plenty of Sunderland fans discuss pairing who were ‘completely ineffectual’ in cup defeat to Mansfield

Published

It was a day to forget for Sunderland on Saturday, as they crashed out of the FA Cup at the first round stage, with defeat to struggling League Two side Mansfield Town at The Stadium of Light.

On-loan Charlton midfielder George Lapslie’s 49th minute strike was enough to secure a 1-0 win for the Stags, and secure their place in the hat for the second round draw.

For the Sunderland, the game had been an opportunity to give a run out to some of their fringe players, although there weren’t many who took the opportunity to impress.

One of those was George Dobson, with the 22-year-old handed a rare start this season, as he was partnered with Max Power – who himself has been in and out of the lineup since the start of the campaign – in the centre of the Black Cats’ midfield.

However, neither player appeared to impress much, with plenty of Sunderland fans heavily critical of the duo as they took to Twitter to give their thoughts on the game.

Here, we take a look at what some of those supporters had to say.
