Sunderland may have managed to steal a late equaliser against Coventry City on Saturday afternoon through Benjamin Mbunga-Kimpioka (Chronicle Live), however fans had been far from happy with how things were turning out in their encounter from an early period of the game.
33′ #SAFC go close to levelling!
McGeady flashes in a great ball across goal but no one is there to touch home.
Come on Sunderland!

Having shortly gone behind, the club’s official Twitter handle had posted about a chance that had been created by Aiden McGeady that supposedly had seen the Black Cats go close; although supporters clearly saw the whole passage of play a little differently.
Many of them had stated that the club had not been anywhere near drawing level with the opportunity as a plethora of them all stated that there was nobody there to get on the end of the cross from the former Republic of Ireland international.
Indeed, McGeady looked to be one of the men to try and make something happen for the hosts at the Stadium of Light, as he had a total of four shots (per WhoScored), although only two of those were on target.
Here are just some of their reactions to the post regarding the 33-year-old’s cross into the box:
Flash in the pan more like.

We weren’t close to levelling then.

So how is that close if there was no one there ‘to touch home’?

Close??? We had a cross. This is what we get excited about now?

If anything sums us up as a club at the minute it’s this…. isn’t a ball across goal where you know a striker should be

Aye Coventry are passing it round us for a laugh, we are just standing off, no press at all, dreadful parky at the wheel.

No one there to touch home. So we didn’t go close then. When was the last time we had a shot on target?
