Sunderland currently find themselves in a promising position to really kick on and secure automatic promotion straight back to the Championship.
The Black Cats have come on leaps and bounds under Jack Ross in the current campaign and don’t look like slowing down any time soon, with arguably the strongest squad in League One. But, they can’t afford to let any complacency set in as there is still a long way to go in what will be a very long, tiring campaign.
Ross has been able to get the best out of a number of players this season, which has seen him reap the rewards at the Stadium of Light. Although, the Wearside club wouldn’t find themselves in the position they’re currently in without the efforts and hard work of one player in particular.
With that in mind, this Sunderland ace will surely have shocked fans this season…
Josh Maja struggled to find his feet in front of goal in the Championship last season as he managed to find the back of the net on one occasion in 17 appearances for the club.
However, the youngster has come on leaps and bounds since then and looks to be the real deal under Jack Ross, with an impressive nine goals to his name at this moment in time.
Indeed, the striker got the Black Cats off to an incredible start in the current campaign and constantly looks a threat in front of goal, so he will have definitely shocked supporters after last season’s efforts.
