Lynden Gooch was one of the Black Cats’ best players on Saturday and has been speaking on why the home crowd can be a huge advantage to the side this season.

“It was brilliant,” Gooch said. “Obviously I know what the fans can give us, they can give us a massive lift.

“We went 1-0 down and they didn’t boo us, they stayed with us so that’s big and we’ll need them all year. It was great to have them back.

“It was tough last season. Teams can come here and be like woah! Whereas last season you didn’t have that, you could hear a pin drop.

“I think a lot of players wouldn’t have played in that atmosphere before.”
