Sunderland made it eight wins from 10 in Sky Bet League One yesterday, as they beat Bristol Rovers by a goal to nil at the Memorial Stadium.
The Black Cats are embarking on an excellent run of form of late, and have picked up 26 points from a possible 30 in their last 10 league outings.
That form has seen them move up to third and to within two points of second place, three points off league leaders Hull City with two games in hand.
Sunderland quiz: 19 facts you may not know about the Stadium of Light – But are they true?
Yesterday, they recorded their 18th win of the campaign with a 1-0 victory over Bristol Rovers at the Memorial Stadium.
Aiden McGeady registered his 12th assist of the League One campaign when his corner found Aiden O’Brien in space. The striker tapping home from close-range and profiting from poor defending by the hosts.
McGeady produced another impressive performance under Lee Johnson, and you feel that his form could be the difference in Sunderland going up automatically or via the play-offs.
Here, we take a look at Sunderland fans’ reactions to McGeady’s performance at the weekend…
He’s good, but he’s no Aiden McGeady 😉 #safc

Aiden McGeady's work-rate today has been sublime.
He's been pretty relentless in his pressing when the chance allows and is tracking back to win the ball too.
Great off the ball performance from the winger.#SAFC

Signing of the season: Dion Sanderson
Player with biggest impact on our season: Aiden Mcgeady
Player of the season: Charlie Wyke for me. The transformation of that lad has been remarkable.
& Lee Johnson. What a great appointment.
