Sunderland move back into the play-off places after a ‘bore draw’ at Home Park against Plymouth.
In what was a crucial game in the race for promotion, neither side succeeded in breaking each other down.
It was a game of few chances, the main chance coming for Argyle when Niall Ennis took a first time shot from the centre of the area after a cross form Steven Sessegnon which was saved comfortably by Anthony Patterson 20 minutes in.
Argyle’s top scorer, Ryan Hardie also had a half chance 5 minutes from the break when he saw his header just go wide of the left-hand post.
Sunderland came out for the second half the stronger of the 2 sides but failed to create any clear cut chances.
Nathan Broadhead, however had a decent chance when he was played through by Corry Evans, but failed to beat the Plymouth ‘keeper.
Sunderland now see themselves in 6th place and in a decent position with 3 games remaining for the Black Cats’.
Well that was boring wasn’t it.
The fact that Wycombe also dropped points means that a draw isn’t so bad.
We are still in 6th place and it’s still in our hands as we have a game in hand against the 2 teams above us, but we need to make sure we make it count.
I still believe we can go up this year despite how poor that was today.
Didn’t have much to do but the fee saves he had to make, he did comfortably.
Carl Winchester 5
Did OK defensively, didn’t do much wrong however his passing was atrocious at times.
Bailey Wright 7
Didn’t put a foot wrong and did well to keep Hardie as quiet as he was.
Dennis Cirkin 6
Did OK defensively also and offered some good support going forward at times.
Corry Evans 6
I’d well to create one of our only real chances. His passing wasn’t great at times as usual.
Jay Matete 6
Too casual on the ball, had a great battle against Camara in the middle of the park.
Luke O’Nien 5
Gave away too many silly fouls and his passing wasn’t great either.
Jack Clarke 4
Failed to get passed his man on multiple occasions and kept giving the ball away time after time.
Elliot Embleton 6
Had a couple of half chances. One hit straight at the ‘keeper and the other sailed over the bar. Otherwise a quiet afternoon.
Ross Stewart 5
Quiet all afternoon as his drought continues. Had one half chance he dragged wide.
Nathan Broadhead 6
Poked dangerous on the counter many times in the first half but his final product was lacking.
Lynden Gooch 5
Came on for O’Nien in the right wing back position but failed to really make any sort of difference.
Patrick Roberts 5
Didnt do anything of note when he came on.
Dan Neil 5
Same as Roberts.
