Match Thread: Sunderland v Lincoln City

I expected Sunderland to drop off but I didn't think they'd do so early in the game, they were never the same after they ran out of the tunnel for the second half. I think it must have been that which finally knackered them.

Great second half though we had to suffer as is the way of these things.

I've never liked having Johnson in midfield and things obviously got a whole lot better after he went up front again. But they showed some real character which is great to see, and it wasn't just about getting stuck-in (though they did), it was about doing the right things with the ball.
