Sunderland fans react as Wycombe's Ryan Allsop makes EFL Team of the Week

The Black Cats lost away at the weekend but some of the Stadium of Light faithful didn't feel the opposition keeper did enough to be deemed best in the whole EFL.

A number of Sunderland fans have taken to Twitter to express bewilderment at the EFL Team of the Week featuring Wycombe goalkeeper Ryan Allsop following his display against the Black Cats in Saturday's 1-0 win over Phil Parkinson's side in League One.

The Chairboys stopper had a relatively quiet afternoon as the Black Cats struggled to muster many opportunities - seven efforts in total, of which only one was on target (BBC Sport), although his save from Aiden McGeady right at the death was undoubtedly impressive.

 

Nonetheless, some Sunderland fans did not feel like Allsop's performance was the best out of every one of the EFL teams in action that weekend, largely because their side didn't exactly give him a torrid time, they themselves admitted.

Here is some of the social media reaction to the selection:

Wycombe took the lead just before the half hour mark as Joe Jacobson's free kick from the left was headed down by Adebayo Akinfenwa and met by Darius Charles on the volley from from eight yards out.

The result means Sunderland now sit 10th in the League One table, seven points behind the now second-placed Chairboys.
