Joel Asoro strikes the winner

A hard-working, battling performance from the Black Cats saw youngster Joel Asoro grab his first goal for the club to give supporters hope they can avoid the drop.

Chris Coleman played a young side including Ethan Robson and a strike pairing of Asoro and Josh Maja, and they repaid their boss in style.

@DogLayer: All this talk of Rodwell this week, man with the heart of a pea on 70 grand a week, bleeding the club dry so isn’t it great to see a young academy lad, Joel Asoro, run his heart out for the cause & get the winner? #safc
