Sunderland: Fans debate whether Phil Parkinson should make changes for Bristol Rovers clash

Sunderland: Fans debate whether Phil Parkinson should make changes for Bristol Rovers clash - Sunderland

Sunderland are on an impressive run of form but some of their performances in recent matches could be a cause for concern.

One aspect of their game that is clearly excelling is the defence, with two goals conceded in eight games, but the narrow win over Oxford on Saturday, and the lack of goals from Charlie Wyke, has led to a debate about whether changes should be made.

Just one shot on target against the U’s shows there is a need for improvement, with games against Bristol Rovers, Fleetwood and promotion rivals Coventry coming up soon, although the Black Cats have consistently picked up points in recent weeks, losing just one of their last 13 league games.

While some fans may be tired of seeing Wyke start due to his return of two goals in 12 games, others fear that dropping him or others from the team could disrupt their rhythm and lead to a negative result.

Phil Parkinson has the team playing with confidence and they have demonstrated that they can win with style and grind out three points when necessary, so it seems any changes to the starting line-up at this point would be an unnecessary risk to make.

Here is some of the debate taking place between Black Cats supporters, some of whom are keen to see more of new signings like Kyle Lafferty.

So Sunderland fans do you share the view that changes are needed to keep things fresh, or is there little point in changing a winning formula? Share your verdict below…
