SUNDERLAND fans got behind Adam Johnson at the Black Cats’ first match after his arrest on child sex allegations.
Travelling supporters gave a voluble rendition of “there’s only one Adam Johnson” as fans chanted the winger’s name in the opening minutes of Sunderland’s away game against Hull.
The 27-year-old was arrested on Monday on suspicion of engaging in sexual activity with a child.
The England international has been released on bail, and has been suspended by the Black Cats pending the outcome of a police investigation.
But some members of away contingent felt the need to stand by their player with sections of supporters giving out the loud chant moments after kick-off at the KC Stadium last night. The game ended 1-1.
Johnson is due to answer bail in two weeks.
