Lee Johnson’s side scored two goals in seven minutes midway through the first half, the first an own goal from Railwaymen defender Terell Thomas before Ross Stewart grabbed his eighth of the season.

Stewart added another early in the second half before substitute Leon Dajaku netted a stunning fourth on the counter-attack to seal an impressive win for Johnson’s men.

The Black Cats return to Wearside this weekend for the first time in a month when they welcome Charlton Athletic to the Stadium of Light looking to regain top spot in League One.

The Addicks are on a poor run of just one win in eight games as pressure begins to mount on manager Nigel Adkins.

But before that, we take a look at what’s been happening around League One over the last 24 hours.
