Sunderland fans react on Twitter as Will Grigg ends goal-drought

Sunderland fans are pleased the striker is finally off the mark.

Sunderland are through to the next round of the EFL Cup after a stellar performance against Premier League side Burnley. The Black Cats ran out 3-1 winners at Turf Moor and deservedly so after outplaying the much-changed Premier League side for most of the game.

It was a fine display and one which saw the likes of Tom Flanagan, Dylan McGeough, and Elliot Embleton highlight what they can still offer Jack Ross. 

But it was perhaps most important for Will Grigg.

Grigg has struggled with form and fitness and his last goal for the club came against Coventry City back in April. 

A run of 13 games without a goal for the 28-year-old was clearly starting to chip away at his confidence and Charlie Wyke has usurped him as number one striker at Sunderland as a consequence.m

So this goal could prove massive for Grigg and Sunderland. If he has finally got the monkey off his back this can hopefully be the beginning of a hot streak of form for the under-fire Sunderland striker. 

Fans at the Stadium of Light are certainly hoping that proves to be the case.
