Sunderland fans have reacted to the win over MK Dons

Max Power and Luke O’Nien struck as Jack Ross’ side sealed an important three points after a 2-1 win, but some supporters were left confused as to why the Black Cats couldn’t build on a solid first-half showing.

Here’s the best of the social media reaction:

@jamie_davison1 joked: “So we only keep clean sheets against premier league teams I see?”

Of the first-half, @Ian_Crow3 posted: “best half I've seen all season tbh. Great attacking play and solid defensively.”

@gas335 asked: “Once again sitting deeper and deeper and inviting pressure... When will the penny drop Ross?”

@ColArmstrong commented: “When the keeper like Burge has a decent game they should certainly be given another chance and start the next game with their confidence being high”

@Gerry_McGregor tweeted: “What in the 1st 30 mins seemed like it would be easy win, now we are scratching around trying to stop #mkdons equalising. Will we ever learn how to remain on top & finish a team off?”

@H3nno59 posted: “What happened in the dressing room. We are a completely different team to the first half.”

@sparkymark23 said: “JR has to be questioned. Why have we dominated the first half but done very little in the 2nd”
