With Sunderland already having scored four goals against Tranmere Rovers, Luke O’Nien made sure that he got in on the act in the 90th minute.
Phil Parkinson the right man for Sunderland?
After the ball had been played into the box from a Chris Maguire free-kick, the 24-year-old leapt through the air and brought out a diving header, sending it into the goal to make the score 5-0, as shown in the video he posted:

The man who was playing the game at right-back was clearly delighted by the goal judging by the celebrations, and many Sunderland fans were also over the moon for him.
The former Wycombe Wanderers midfielder has become a popular figure at the Stadium of Light, as shown by the replies to his tweet, so the fans are very happy to see him get his second goal of the campaign, as per WhoScored.
A selection of Twitter reaction to the goal, including posts from delighted Sunderland fans, can be seen below:
