Sunderland have decided to postpone their match against Fleetwood Town, as reported on the club’s official website.
Will Jack Ross finish the season at Sunderland?
Due to the call-ups, the Black Cats were given the option to postpone the League One match, which has been taken:
Our upcoming game against @ftfc has been postponed following several international call-ups.

However, many fans have been left outraged by the club’s decision, claiming there is a lack of consideration for fans, no ambition, while also stating their feeling that the decision is needless.
Conor McLaughlin has been a regular, starting seven league games, but many of the fans feel he is easily replaceable, with all of this leaving plenty of the club’s supporters bemused about the decision to postpone.
A selection of Twitter reaction to the announcement, including posts from outraged Sunderland fans, can be seen below:
@stewartdonald3 This is ridiculous. We are going to be so far behind again.

Don’t tell me it’s because of 2 players??!
Jon McLaughlin is what 3rd choice for Scotland & Flanagan is 4th choice for us so we have cover for both.
As for Connor McLaughlin has no one not got a spare scarecrow we can use??

1 player who isn’t even in the lineup. 1 who we have a perfect replacement in goal and the other is easily replaceable
SAFC not thinking of fans once again
We have the squad to cover it so why not just play it. 2-3k taken off the gates in one post you have put up
