Sunderland fans have criticised the performance of Jerome Sinclair in their Checkatrade Trophy victory yesterday.

Sunderland won 2-0 at the Stadium of Light last night in comfortable fashion against their League Two opponents, but Sinclair failed to impress.

 

The Watford loanee scored from the penalty spot, but even his goal did not come without controversy.

Sinclair took the ball off youngster Benji Kimpioka to ensure that he got to take the spot kick.

And many Sunderland fans have been left less than impressed with the summer signing’s actions.

Sinclair hit just one goal in 12 appearances for Sunderland prior to yesterday’s showing, so may have been feeling the pressure to get on the scoresheet.

Sunderland are now just three wins away from a trip to Wembley, after making good progress in the EFL Trophy so far.
