'Confused,' 'Did not expect this' - Sunderland fans react to Lee Johnson's starting XI as youngster left out
Lee Johnson has named his starting XI to face Northampton Town.
Sunderland are looking for a return to build on last weekend’s 3-1 win against Plymouth at Home Park as Lee Johnson’s men prepare for the play-offs.
Can Sunderland bag another win before the play-offs begin?
Here’s how you reacted on Twitter to Johnson’s team to face the Northampton Town at the Stadium of Light:
@wil_safc: “Why no Josh Hawkes??”
@15jgilmore: “No Josh Hawkes. Good team, just disappointed that Hawkes isn’t even involved and Maguire is on the bench AGAIN.”
@janeelx_: “Confused as to why Stewart isn’t on there and he’s not opted for Hawkes.”
@Philip_RJ89: "Wow. Did not expect this. This isn’t experimental. This is a full-on, attack-minded selection. Risky? Positive? Certainly hints at wanting to finish the season with comprehensive win! #SAFC.”
@DavidHindmarsh7: “He really doesn’t like Maguire does he?? What does he have to do to actually start a game?”
