The spoils were shared at the Stadium of Light in a cagey game, and fans had plenty to say about the performance of the Black Cats, and the display of referee James Adcock.

Here’s what supporters were saying on social media:

@pinkfairy727 asked: “Did this ref misplace his yellow card after he booked Wyke?”

@snoof4u said: “I get the frustration, went to Wycombe game and it was class. Donny have been better organised BUT I'm encouraged seeing the lads keep trying to play it on the floor a bit Tbf our defence have been solid, our fitness is good so could be a good final quarter.”

@backhomemackem argued: “We’re letting them dictate , our passing is woeful and just what is Wyke offering”

@jrhk_97 added: “I don't like to judge a book by its cover but just seeing the ref in the tunnel I new he was in for a poor game”

@Ian_Crow3 posted: “Sloppy, nowt like previous games. No intensity or pressing their back 4. Credit to Donny, much better, just lacking final ball. Need to watch Ref been shocking”

@geoffreygibson1 commented: “typical us put a good run together and suddenly forget how to win a match”

@cogpiece tweeted: “Parkinson hasn’t won me over football under him is abysmal”

@Evs_Dubai added: “The ref’s had a stinker here.”

@neilmack84 said: “That Charlie Wyke yellow card is up there with worst decisions I’ve seen this season, and in this league that really is saying something”

@SpeakSAFC asked: “How was Wyke booked for a ‘dive’ when their number two jumped in the air 5 seconds after any contact and didnt even get a talking to ?”

@Kingy78_ posted: “Nothing in the game. Doncaster look better than they did when we played them down there”

@safcftm2016 commented: “Ref isn’t good but can’t blame him for the likes of power not being able to pass the ball to someone in same strip or wykes pathetic attempts at holding ball.”
