Sunderland’s League One campaign rolls on this midweek with a trip to Crewe Alexandra

Monday, 18th October 2021, 12:25 pm

Lee Johnson’s side had to dig in to earn a positive three points over Gillingham on Saturday, coming from behind before playing out the final 23 minutes with 10 men.

It came after midfielder Elliot Embleton was shown a straight red card for a challenge on Jack Tucker following Tom Flanagan’s header which gave the Black Cats the lead.

But the Wearsiders were able to stand firm to hold onto the three points and remain fourth in the League One table.

Johnson’s side travel to Crewe on Tuesday and the Sunderland head coach will have something of a selection headache with Embleton's suspension adding to a number of first team players who are missing through injury.

But ahead of the Black Cats trip to Gresty Road we look at what’s been happening around League One over the last 24 hours.
