Will Grigg completed 90 minutes in the 2-2 draw against Accrington Stanley on Friday night – and many of the club’s supporters were critical of him and believe he desperately needs his first goal for the club.
Manager Jack Ross saw his side fight back from two goals down to earn a point in League One, but they may feel it was two points dropped at home.
George Honeyman and Aiden McGeady popped up with second-half goals after Accrington had taken their lead.
The Black Cats are third in the League One table now as it stands and have plenty of work to do if they want automatic promotion this campaign.
A selection of Sunderland fans discussed the performance of Grigg on social media, as he played the full game in attack.
The club splashed out £4million (BBC) to bring him to the club in January from Wigan Athletic and are hoping he can fire them to promotion.
He is a 27-year-old that has been a goal machine in recent seasons, but he’s yet to net his first Sunderland goal after three appearances.
Grigg did miss a couple of goalscoring opportunities against Accrington, but did show his value by laying on an assist.
The Northern Ireland international has scored 96 League One goals during his career and Sunderland fans believe it’s only a matter of time before he discovers form.
Here are Sunderland fans on Grigg’s latest performance:

Grigg massively needs a goal for that confidence boost

Defenders need to be closer, you could get buses through between them, midfield is lacking bite and Grigg needs to find the net quick, not good enough, Gooch again isn’t doing well enough #safc

Will Grigg reminds me of David Connolly, who similarly took ages to get off the mark. Think the goals will come #SAFC

Grigg done everything well tonight , his touch etc was class the goals will come I’ve no doubt just needs one to go in! Maguire was quality when he came on means we have a bit flair on the pitch
