Sunderland’s stunning 38,000+ attendances compared with Leeds, Middlesbrough, Everton & Co - fan photo gallery

Attendances at the Stadium of Light this season rank among the very biggest in the country.

42,584 fans were in attendance on Sunday as Sunderland defeated local rivals Middlesbrough 2-0, a win that moved the Black Cats into 9th place in the league.

Helped by Dael Fry’s red card just minutes into the second-half, Ross Stewart’s opener gave Tony Mowbray’s side the lead before Amad Diallo’s strike ten minutes from time sent the majority of fans inside the Stadium of Light wild.

The win was Sunderland’s fifth league win in-front of their own fans this season. The Black Cats now face back-to-back trips to London before a clash with Reading at home on February 11.
