Sunderland: Some fans were left underwhelmed despite win against Southend United

Sunderland beat Southend United 1-0 on Saturday, thanks to Luke O’Nien’s 20th-minute diving header from Denver Hume’s cross.

It was important that Phil Parkinson’s side picked up a positive result against the Shrimpers, to help get over the Carabao Cup loss against Oxford United.

There is also significance from the result regarding the table, as it keeps the Black Cats one point behind fourth, with a game in hand on two of the three teams standing in the way of them getting there.

Sunderland’s admin enthusiastically tweeted about the result and three points that followed:

While many fans were happy to see their team get three points on the board, there were some who were still underwhelmed by what they saw from the men in red and white.

This was closer than many of them expected it to be, despite the recent appointment of Sol Campbell, with Sunderland’s one goal taking Southend’s number of goals conceded this campaign to 44 in just 16 games.
