Sunderland: Fans praise Phil Parkinson as statistics highlight upturn in fortunes

Sunderland: Fans praise Phil Parkinson as statistics highlight upturn in fortunes - Sunderland

If Sunderland maintain their current form, they look like contenders to win promotion back to the Championship, a feat that seemed unattainable just a few weeks ago.

The Black Cats went into Christmas in the bottom half of the table after a run of seven defeats in eight games, with Phil Parkinson getting off to a disastrous start to life in the north-east with two wins in his first 14 games. However, despite pressure from fans calling on their manager to be sacked, Parkinson has seemingly adapted well and found a system that allows his players to thrive.

Some supporters have taken note of his recent statistics, which includes one defeat in 12 games, with 14 goals scored in that time and just six goals conceded. Such a return, particularly defensively, is what often forms the foundation for promotion, and considering that Sunderland are now just four points off second-placed Peterborough with two games in hand, it is likely that they could break into the automatic promotion places sooner rather than later.

Parkinson deserves tremendous credit for that, and he is receiving it from several Black Cats fans, as seen below.
