Sunderland fans are delighted after Lee Johnson revealed Bailey Wright is ready to go ahead of the Black Cats’ League One match on Tuesday.
The Stadium of Light outfit suffered a blow to their promotion hopes at the weekend as they lost 2-1 to Charlton Athletic. They are now five points behind Peterborough in second place and, while they do still have a game in hand, they can no longer catch Posh unless results go their way (BBC).
On Tuesday, they face Wigan Athletic, who are currently in the relegation zone. Sunderland will be confident of a win to get back to winning ways, and in a boost to their chances of victory, Johnson has revealed Wright could well be available to face the Latics.
Wright is the club’s highest rated centre-back this term and fourth-highest rated player overall, per Whoscored.
Will Sunderland beat Wigan?
The news was shared on Sunderland’s official Twitter account, and it attracted plenty of attention from the club’s supporters. They took to the social media platform to share their thoughts.
Let’s see what the fans had to say about the Wright news below
“Great to see Wright is fit. We need him for the run in imo. Also great to see Arby back! Hope he can hit the ground running for us next season!”
“Good news should be in tomorrow”
“Get him in”
“Straight in the team for me tomorrow then”
In other news, Sunderland fans want this in-form star to leave the club.
