Sunderland: Jack Ross has his say on the Peterborough United loss

Jack Ross has had his say on Sunderland’s 3-0 loss to Peterborough United on Saturday, as reported on the club’s official website.

Published on Tuesday, the Sunderland manager claimed that his players were at it as they were beaten at the weekend, with the game being swung by key moments.

He also stated that this was not a reality check, as there was no complacency going into the game, before going on to say that the Black Cats will now move on from the disappointing result.

Sunderland had already conceded all three of the game’s goals before Luke O’Nien and Charlie Wyke were sent off, as per SofaScore, so this wouldn’t have had a great impact on the result.

While Ross claims that the game hinged on key moments, there is evidence that Peterborough were better than the men in red and white across the match, which the manager perhaps hinted at by conceding that the Posh deserved to win the game.

He said: “We felt good coming into the game, the performance in the early part of the game was good. Sometimes you have days where it hinges on key moments and that’s what happened.

“Peterborough deserved to win the game, they’ve recorded a good result, and we move on.”

Peterborough had more possession, shots, big chances, passes, tackles and won more duels than Sunderland did during the 90 minutes.

Ross is perhaps being a bit kind to his players with his statement, as they didn’t really match up to Peterborough during the loss.

However, he is correct that the club needs to move on from this performance and result – Sunderland are still just one point off second-place and have progressed past Burnley in the Carabao Cup.
