Sunderland: Many fans are looking for Lee Burge to push on

Sunderland: Many fans are looking for Lee Burge to push on - Sunderland

Jon McLaughlin has been called up for the Scotland national team squad, as confirmed on the Sunderland Twitter account.

Will Jack Ross finish the season at Sunderland?

Yes

Yes

No

No

This comes after he has started all nine of Sunderland’s League One matches so far, though he is yet to keep a clean sheet, as per Transfermarkt.

The 32-year-old’s inclusion will put him up against David Marshall and Craig MacGillivray to feature against Russia and San Marino:

Rather than looking at this development in excitement for McLaughlin, many Sunderland fans are actually seeing this as a big opportunity for his understudy, Lee Burge.

The 26-year-old has only featured in the Carabao Cup so far this season, though he has played the full 90 minutes in all three of the games.

He has been impressive, especially against Sheffield United, when he kept the Black Cats’ first clean sheet of the season.

There are sections of the Sunderland support who feel Burge should also be playing in the league, with McLaughlin’s time away with the Scotland national team potentially being his chance to show it.

A selection of Twitter reaction to the announcement, including posts from excited Sunderland fans, can be seen below:
