Many Sunderland fans were far from happy with the performance of Bailey Wright during their 3-3 draw with Accrington Stanley on Saturday.
The Black Cats were in action as they attempted to consolidate their place in the League One play-offs. They have been in poor form over the past few weeks, losing three and drawing one of their last four (Sky Sports), and they were once again unable to grab victory in a match that twisted and turned.
A Charlie Wyke brace gave Sunderland the lead early on but Colby Bishop halved the deficit after the break. Then, Luke O’Nien put the ball into the back of his own net. Max Power looked to have grabbed the win before Sean McConville popped up to level things up once more (Sky Sports).
However, Wright struggled at the heart of the back four. He lost possession 17 times and was culpable of a number of misplaced passes (SofaScore) – Johnson will be expecting more from him between now and the end of the season.
Will Sunderland get promoted?
These supporters were unhappy with they saw from the defender, and they took to social media platform Twitter to share their thoughts on his “awful” performance.
Let’s see what the fans had to say about Wright below
“Bailey Wright is abysmal”
“Bailey Wright is a massive worry for me”
“Why does Bailey Wright insist on taking 5 touches on the ball every time, sometimes just get rid man”
“That goal all stemmed from a dreadful ball from Wright to Scowen.”
“Watching the partnership between Hume & McGeady, its hard to fathom the manager pondered long & hard before he got a start. Wyke is playing well with his back to goal & 2 great finishes. Bailey Wright & Burge still giving me heart attacks though – even at 2 up!”
“Luke O’Nien and Bailey Wright just don’t work together do they… both had awful awful games”
In other news, many Sunderland fans slam this manager’s comments.
