SUNDERLAND enjoyed a first appearance of pre-season for last season’s joint top scorer Adam Johnson after he missed last weekend’s friendly at Darlington 1883 with an ankle injury.

Head coach Gus Poyet said after his side’s 3-0 victory at Hartlepool United: “Johnno was desperate to play and he linked up well with Fletch.

“I’m sure he’s going to have an even better season this year with us than he did last.”
