Phil Smith’s AFC Player Ratings for Sunderland: Who Got the Top Grades in Stunning Lincoln City Win?

The Black Cats took the lead after a hectic start to the game when Jack Diamond was found fouled in the pits.

Grant Leadbitter stepped forward to give Sunderland the lead, and from there they never looked back. Charlie Wyke and Diamond himself extended the lead before half-time.

« What we have to do when we concede a goal won’t be too disappointed, » said Appleton.

« These things happen. It was clearly not a penalty but there is nothing we can do about it and we have to take care of it and stay in the game.

« If you lose 1-0, maybe even 2-0 at half time, at least you have a chance to put them under pressure.

« It was bad, » he said of the penalty decision. “The whistle practically went to his mouth before the boy’s impact, which suggests he was confident.

« But you could tell he was not confident because from our players’ reaction he knew he had made a mistake.

« It was doubly disappointing because we had two incredible opportunities before (through Brennan Johnson). A bit of frustration then set in. « 

Sunderland were in complete control of the second half when Wyke doubled their record, but Appleton was reluctant to criticize his team for the lack of threat in the second half.

« It’s difficult to come back down against a team at our level 3-0, but when you try to come back 3-0 against such an experienced team it’s even harder. « .

« For me, it was about making sure our attitude stays good and we stay as competitive as possible.

« When you are 3-0 and you have your experience, it’s easy. A 0-0 is a little different, there is more fear and pressure on what you do.

« From the perspective of the second half, I won’t be too harsh with the players. « . The game was over at that point. I’m not negative, that’s a fact. ”
