Sunderland fans rage at ‘shocking’ Lynden Gooch after defeat to Southend

Sunderland suffered a 2-1 defeat to Southend United on the final day of the League One season – and some of the club’s supporters on Twitter ripped into attacker Lynden Gooch for the quality of his performance.

The Black Cats cancelled out a John White goal with Chris Maguire’s penalty, but Stephen Humphrys scored a late winner for Southend to keep them in the division.

Jack Ross’ side will now turn their attention to the play-offs and they have a two-legged tie with Portsmouth in the semi-final.

They have ended up six points clear of second-placed Barnsley and just missed out on automatic promotion.

A selection of Sunderland fans on social media were furious with Gooch following his display away to Southend.

The 23-year-old missed some a brilliant chance to score and was unable to pick up some momentum ahead of the play-offs.

He is a right-winger that has completed 90 minutes in the final two games of the season, but some are adamant he should be left out in the play-offs.

Gooch has made 44 appearances across all competitions this season, scoring seven goals and supplying nine assists in return.
