Sunderland fans debate whether Will Grigg deserves another chance

Sunderland fans debate whether Will Grigg deserves another chance

Sunderland fell to their first defeat in ten matches when they visited Fratton Park on Saturday, and once again Phil Parkinson found no place in his matchday squad for Will Grigg.

The striker has now missed out on four consecutive matches so is clearly out of favour currently, yet the 28-year-old rejected a move to Salford towards the end of the transfer window.

That may indicate that he wasn’t keen on playing League Two football, or instead that he is determined to win his place back in the Sunderland side, after seeing January signings Kyle Lafferty and Antoine Semenyo take his place in the pecking order – both of whom started on the bench against Portsmouth.

Considering the Northern Ireland international has just one league goal all season that is not surprising, though there are still a number of supporters who believe Grigg is still worthy of a place in the team.

One possible reason for that is Charlie Wyke’s poor goalscoring form. The 27-year-old has started the last ten Sunderland matches but scored just three times, thereby showing the lack of clinical edge up-front for the Black Cats. Despite that, some fans oppose Grigg returning to the side, and given Sunderland have largely been better without him – as their unbeaten run evidenced – it is understandable that they have taken such a view.
