Denver Hume put in a brilliant performance for Sunderland against Southend United, as he helped keep a clean sheet and assisted the only goal of the game.
It was his pinpoint cross that was met with a diving header from Luke O’Nien to earn all three points for the Black Cats, as shown in the highlights video on the Southend United Football Club YouTube channel.
The 23-year-old was superb going forward, completing all 3 of his attempted dribbles, making 4 key passes and completing 86% of his attempted passes during the game, as per WhoScored.
Following the game, the left-back spoke of his delight at picking up the three points and the contribution he was able to make:
“It’s massive to get the clean sheet and three points.”
