Following their EFL Trophy semi final success in midweek, Sunderland return to league action this afternoon, when they travel to the Pirelli Stadium to take on Burton Albion.

Lee Johnson’s side go into the game seventh in the League One table, just one point adrift of the play-off places, having lost only one of their last six league games.

Burton meanwhile, go into the game bottom of the table, but having won three of their last four matches, having enjoyed an impressive recent resurgence since the re-appointment of Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink as manager last month.

Perhaps with that in mind, Johnson has named a Sunderland side that shows _ changes from the one that beat Lincoln in the cup in midweek, as Conor McLaughlin, Dion Sanderson, Jake Vokins and Aiden O’Brien come into the side in an apparent switch to a 3-4-3 formation, with Josh Scowen and Dan Neill drop to the bench, with Bailey Wright and Callum McFadzean missing out completely.

Taking to Twitter to react to that team news, plenty of Sunderland fans were keen to give their thoughts on their side’s starting lineup for the game.

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