@mksavage73 commented: "We have nothing up front and but for our outstanding keeper we’d be conceding 2 or 3 every game. That was brutal today."

@SimonJHeth added: "2 pts dropped again, but not too bad of a result with the game in hand on them and Pompey losing. Sign a decent striker in January, keep the current squad fit and we’ll be fine"

@MaloyJordan tweeted: "Referee aside I think any result other then a defeat today was a good one and Portsmouth lost which is a bonus..."

@SpeakSAFC said: "Sunderland come away with only a point. A frustrating game in many ways with an absolutely dreadful refereeing performance. Wyke isn’t good enough on his own and Maja was needed"

@fffsssafc commented: "The lack of goals is an absolute joke serious lack of creativity. Thibk Ross needs buck up his ideas"

@KatilaHenry posted; "Well at least we didn't lose... and with game in hand we could still go to 2nd easily"

@NathRNath added: "We were absolutely robbed today. Im speechless when I think about some of these decisions. I can’t even say “Aye I’ve seen them given” because I literally haven’t. Robbed. Absolutely robbed"

@mally1robbo said: "I see the knee jerk brigade is out tonight. A point for #SAFC in a difficult game and Pompey lose. We move on and long way to go"
