Sunderland: Stewart, O’Nien and Evans struggle vs Gillingham

Sunderland: Stewart, O’Nien and Evans struggle vs Gillingham -Sunderland News

Sunderland had to rely on a last-gasp winner from Everton loanee Nathan Broadhead in order to win 1-0 and take all three points against Gillingham.

It was a game that Alex Neil’s team completely dominated at the Stadium of Light, recording 80% possession and 25 shots on goal, but they were pretty wasteful at times going forward, and The Transfer Tavern have used statistical experts SofaScore to analyse who their three worst performers (to have played at least 45 minutes) were on the day.

Could these men be looking over their shoulders regarding their place in the XI?

Corry Evans

Admittedly joint with Anthony Patterson in terms of overall rating (6.9), Evans ranks in third here given the goalkeeper’s clean sheet.

How well do you know Super Kev, Sunderland fans? Find out with our quiz! To start off, how much did the Black Cats pay for Phillips in 1997?

The captain lost out on five of his duels in total, and also failed to record a single shot on target, dribble, clearance, interception or key pass, while he was guilty of giving the ball away on six separate occasions.

Luke O’Nien

With a 6.7 rating, O’Nien was the Wearside club’s second-worst performer.

The central midfield player was subbed off for Elliot Embleton in the 68th minute, after making little impact going forward.

He was guilty of missing a big chance, and was off target with both of his efforts on goal, while he also made no dribbles or key passes, and lost possession a total of 17 times.

Ross Stewart

It certainly was not Stewart’s best game for the Black Cats, as he recorded just a 6.0 rating.

Should Sunderland start Stewart?

Yes

Yes

No

No

The striker was perhaps starved of quality service at times, but he did miss one big chance, and was off target with both of his shots.

He also made no successful dribbles or key passes, and lost the ball six times in total, as Broadhead came on to save the day.
