@MartysafcLane: Steele is by a country mile the worst keeper I've ever seen at the club. Seriously think they could drag someone out of the crowd who would make a better go of it #safc #down

@mickroper81: Think of the positive lads, at least Steele got a hand to it! First time this season #safc

@ColArmstrong: Just when you think Steele can't put in a worse performance than he has in previous games! #Safc

Jason Steele is sent off.

@CllrCallaghan: Why play Steele? Liability since preseason. But then why of why would you take off Asoro our only attacking threat? The stupidity of that is beyond me. Bring back Kevin Ball. #SAFC

@ALS_Fanzine: Fair play to Jason Steele, of all the horrors I could have predicted for today, I wouldn't have predicted that. A true entertainer

@RoryFallow: Don’t think I’ve ever seen a Sunderland player as fundamentally bad as Jason Steele

@MohanjeetArora: At least it was a straight red. 3 match ban is a bonus!! Useless waste of space

Jason Steele is sent off.
