Sunderland fans rave about performance of Bryan Oviedo in 1-1 draw with Burton Albion

The 29-year-old has missed a large chunk of this season but made his first start since December last night.

Sunderland defender Bryan Oviedo started a game for the first time since December in Tuesday night’s 1-1 draw with Burton Albion.

The Costa Rican has been forced to wait patiently for a chance after a move to West Brom fell through on deadline day in January.

Oviedo has since suffered a string of niggling injuries; twice to his calf and once to his knee.

The 29-year-old had an impact from the bench in Saturday’s last-gasp 2-1 win over Rochdale.

Such was his display, boss Jack Ross opted to deploy him from the start last night and he didn’t disappoint.

The ex-Everton man played the full 90 minutes as the Black Cats entered the automatic promotion spots in League One.

Jack Baldwin’s goal cancelled out Lewis Morgan’s 19th-minute own goal which saw Sunderland trail.

Oviedo is still one of the higher earners at the Stadium of Light. According to Silly Season, he earns £25k-a-week at the club.

Whilst he is playing well though, Ross or the supporters won’t mind one bit.

The club’s army of fans were certainly satisfied with Oviedo last night and took to Twitter to offer their congratulations.
