Sunderland’s disappointing start to the 2015-16 season continued this weekend, as they played out a 1-1 draw with Swansea City at home in the Premier League.
The Black Cats headed into the game at the Stadium of Light on Saturday on the back of a 3-1 defeat to Norwich City at home.
Prior to that loss, Sunderland had gone down 4-2 to Leicester City away from home at the King Power Stadium in their opening Premier League game of the season.
Pressure was on Black Cats manager Dick Advocaat to get a result, and finally his side could pick up a point.
Visiting Swansea took the lead at the Stadium of Light on the stroke of half time when Bafetimbi Gomis angled in a shot after being set up by Kyle Naughton.
Hosts Sunderland restored parity just past the hour mark through Jermain Defoe, who found the target after being set up by Jeremain Lens.
Over the course of the 90 minutes, Sunderland had just 39% of the possession, took 10 shots of which just two were on target and earned three corners.
Although a point against Swansea at home is not a bad result, Advocaat’s frustrations during the game were evident, as shown in the photos above, below and to the right.
