Sunderland: Fans slam Lynden Gooch

Sunderland: Fans slam Lynden Gooch - Sunderland News

Many Sunderland fans were far from happy with the performance of Lynden Gooch during their 2-1 defeat in League One on Saturday afternoon.

The Black Cats’ hopes of promotion to the Championship were dealt a significant blow as they succumbed to Charlton Athletic, who are currently chasing a play-off spot. Josh Scowen put through his own net for the opener, and Alex Gilbey added the second after the break.

Although Scowen was on hand to halve the deficit, it was not enough to earn Sunderland anything from the game. Even with a game in hand, they are five points behind second-placed Peterborough United (BBC), so their fate is no longer in their own hands.

The display of Gooch was particularly disappointing. He landed just 64% of his attempted passes and prevailed in only two of his five duels (SofaScore). Lee Johnson will need an improvement between now and the end of the campaign.
