The Black Cats forward, brought on as a sub by Jack Ross, missed a gilt-edged opportunity for the Stadium of Light side.

A number of Sunderland fans have taken to Twitter to comment on Will Grigg’s performance for the Black Cats in the 3-1 win away at Accrington Stanley.

Although the Black Cats picked up all three points, it was another bittersweet afternoon for the 28-year-old, who spurned a great opportunity late on to remain goalless in League One this season.

Grigg played quite well after coming on for Chris Maguire with some promising runs and all-round lively attacking play, but the chance late on saw him ahead of the last defender and just outside the six-yard box with just the keeper to beat, only to fire straight at him.

A striker who has averaged more than 20 goals a season in League One during spells at Wigan Athletic, Walsall and MK Dons, Grigg has scored just four times in League One for Jack Ross’s side in the last eight months.

Reaction over Grigg’s latest display was mixed, with some Sunderland fans thinking it’s just not going to happen for him, while others continue to give him support and are optimistic he’ll come good:
