A stunning second-half strike from Lynden Gooch secured a 1-0 win for the Black Cats, who have now won three games on the bounce in League One and are unbeaten in seven.

Phillips was a pundit on the EFL on Quest highlights show, and says a consistency of selection is beginning to pay off for Phil Parkinson and his side.

“They've turned the corner, no doubt about that,” he said.

“They've found their scoring boots and are finding a way to win.

“It's a fantastic finish from Lynden Gooch and what's interesting is that he's pretty much picking the same side week in, week out, and that's the consistency you need to challenge in this league.

“They’re certainly doing that at the moment.”

Phillips also praised the travelling Sunderland support, with over 4,000 making the trip south on Saturday afternoon.
