Wycombe Wanderers defender Darius Charles has told the club’s official Twitter account that Sunderland fans looked ‘smug’ at the weekend.

Sunderland were backed in large numbers, as they always are, at Adams Park on Saturday, with the away support hopeful of three points in Phil Parkinson’s first game in charge.

However, Sunderland were beaten 1-0 by Wycombe, with Charles scoring the only goal of the game.

 

The 31-year-old quickly raced over to celebrate in front of the Sunderland supporters when he did score.

And, after the game, Charles took aim at the Sunderland supporters once again.

He said: “They came here and I felt they were smug. They came with this Sunderland presence. But I wanted to let them know, this is our house. You play by our rules. We’re second in the table, you are wherever you are. Respect us.”

Wycombe are now eight places and seven points above Sunderland as things stand in League One.

The Chairboys look to be real contenders for promotion, so Sunderland’s defeat on Saturday was a major blow to them.

Sunderland are next in action tomorrow evening against Tranmere Rovers.
