RAT­INGS

Sunderland Echo - - Football -

JON MCLAUGH­LIN .................... 8 Not his most com­mand­ing at set pieces but made an­other breath­tak­ing dou­ble save with his team just one goal ahead. Ab­so­lutely piv­otal once more. ADAM MATTHEWS .................... 6 At­tack­ing out­put was un­char­ac­ter­is­ti­cally poor but he did make some im­por­tant in­ter­ven­tions at the other end. TOM FLANA­GAN ........................ 6 Height and ex­pe­ri­ence is prov­ing vi­tal in dif­fi­cult mo­ments for the Black Cats. Fourth clean sheet in a row for his part­ner­ship with Bald­win. JACK BALD­WIN ......................... 6 De­fended very well in the lat­ter stages, even if the move­ment of Fred­die Ladapo caused numer­ous prob­lems. REECE JAMES ............................. 7 Helped keep the tal­ented Gra­ham Carey quiet on the left flank. De­liv­er­ing with real con­sis­tency. DY­LAN MCGEOUCH ..................... 7 Re­ally show­ing his worth to the team. Dis­ci­plined de­fen­sively and in­tel­li­gent on the ball. GE­ORGE HONEY­MAN ................. 6 Broke up plenty of op­po­si­tion at­tacks and cov­ered mas­sive dis­tances as usual. AI­DEN MCGEADY ........................ 7 Poor in the first half but lifted his side with a mo­ment of bril­liance early in the sec­ond. Penalty was em­phat­i­cally taken. CHRIS MAGUIRE ....................... 5 Short of his best but did draw a save from Matt Macey early on. Not able to get into the game in the fi­nal third. LYN­DEN GOOCH .......................... 6 Per­sis­tent and bat­tled hard but did not look as com­fort­able on the left flank. JOSH MAJA ............................... 5 Found it tough on his re­turn to the start­ing XI. Strug­gled with his an­kle didn’t get many sights of goal. SUBS JEROME SIN­CLAIR ................... 6 Un­lucky that a cou­ple of dan­ger­ous crosses were just out of his reach. LUKE O’NIEN .............................. 6 Won a penalty within mo­ments of get­ting on the pitch. Helped get his team up the pitch. BALI MUMBA ............................. 6 Brief cameo but did his job well.
