'Cry more' - Portsmouth fans mock Sunderland supporters following Fratton Park drubbing in League One

The Black Cats’ eight-game unbeaten run came to an end as Lee Johnson’s men were defeated 4-0 by Portsmouth at Fratton Park.

Lee Johnson made three changes to his starting XI following the team’s 5-0 win over Cheltenham last time out, with Elliot Embleton, Dennis Cirkin and Leon Dajaku coming in.

Aiden McGeady and Nathan Broadhead missed the game through injury, while Lynden Gooch remained absent with a foot issue.
