‘Game changer’, ‘Refreshing’ – Sunderland fans hail new hero O’Nien

Luke O’Nien scored Sunderland’s fourth goal last night. Sunderland fans were full of praise for him.

Luke O’Nien came off the bench for Sunderland last night and scored a goal which wrapped up three points.

It was O’Nien’s first goal at The Stadium of Light and it restored Sunderland’s two-goal cushion late on against Barnsley.

Sunderland had led 3-0 in the first half but a Kieffer Moore double brought Barnsley back into the game.

With the Tykes dominant and pushing for an equaliser, O’Nien was on hand to kill them off.

Aiden McGeady – who was also excellent – teed the 24-year-old up to provide the finishing touch with 83 minutes on the clock.

O’Nien’s lively display came after he changed the game against Walsall last weekend.

Ten-man Sunderland were 2-0 down when O’Nien came on, inspiring a comeback as the game ended 2-2.

Sunderland fans were effusive in their praise for their new hero.

The former Wycombe Wanderers man is starting to show his talent to the supporters after a slow start.

With impressive performances on the pitch and commendable actions off the field, O’Nien is becoming a fans’ favourite at The Stadium of Light.

 

Below are some tweets from Sunderland fans discussing his goal scoring cameo.
