Sunderland: Fans react as crossing has improved under Lee Johnson

Sunderland: Fans react as crossing has improved under Lee Johnson - Sunderland News

Plenty of Sunderland fans have been reacting to a report that shows that crossing has improved under Lee Johnson.

As per the Sunderland Echo, the Stadium of Light faithful were crossing the ball from different areas in their 2-1 away win at Oldham Athletic in the Football League Trophy on Tuesday night, compared to against Burton Albion in the EFL League One just over a week ago, a game in where they only managed to draw 1-1 at home.

Is Johnson the right man for the Sunderland job?

Yes

Yes

No

No

The Black Cats were crossing far less frequently against Oldham and from much better areas than when they played Burton, suggesting that Johnson has tweaked something tactically since he was appointed as their manager.

If more draws turn into wins based on this tactic, then Johnson may well be the man to lead SAFC into the Championship come the end of the 2020/21 term.
