Sunderland fans turned out in numbers at Shrewsbury Town

After a cagey first half, a trio of substitutions from Jack Ross helped to turn the tide and saw the Black Cats register another fine win on the road.

Lynden Gooch and Luke O'Nien found the net and both came in for praise - and as too did Ross, whose changes helped to seal the three points.
