Sunderland fans react as Jon McLaughlin shines again


Sunderland fans react as Jon McLaughlin shines again

The Scottish keeper has been in fine form since his arrival from Hearts.

Sunderland drew yet another League One game yesterday afternoon. The Black Cats conceded a late goal from Marcus Browne as Oxford United claimed a 1-1 draw at the Kassam Stadium.

Earlier, Jimmy Dunne had given the visitors the lead but Sunderland boss Jack Ross must have been disappointed with yet another sub-par performance from the promotion chasers.

In fact, were it not for one Sunderland player, it could have been worse.

Snapped up from Hearts on a free transfer, as reported by the BBC, in the summer he has been a revelation at the Stadium of Light.

His displays between the sticks for Sunderland have kept them in the running for an automatic promotion slot, with numerous occasions he has managed to ensure turning potential defeats into draws this term.

Sunderland fans are getting used to his heroics by now. Another man-of-the-match display and surely he is Sunderland’s player of the season. Now if only the club’s other players could provide more going the other way, some of these draws might become important wins for the Wearsiders.
