NB52 Plays The 90 Mins But Sunderland Slip To A Undeserved 1-2 Defeat Late On *Video Highlights Here*
Nothing seems to be going so right for Sunderland at the moment, The Mackems created several chances before going down to a 1-2 loss in stoppage time from a miscommunication from the defender and the keeper. Featured player Nicklas Bendtner is still finding his feet in his new club, on his 10th appearance, He had a relatively quiet game yesterday, but played a part in Sunderland’s first goal cutting back onto his right foot, before smashing a low effort that bounced up towards Al-Habsi, who fumbled it and it fell to Swedish midfielder Sebastian Larsson who smashed it in from close range. Wigan Athletic’s lively winger Victor Moses dropped his shoulder and got into the box before taking a drop he was deemed to be tripped by Seb Larsson, but replays showed there was minimum contact, if any and Jordi Gomez tucked home the penalty just before the break to give the Latics the momentum into the 2nd period.
The second half was more of the same from Sunderland, players working overtime to get 3 points to get out of the lower sides of the Barclays Premier League. N.B-52 was coming deep quiet abit, but ocasionally the Mackems’ midfield were struggling to find him. With 4 minutes time added on after the 90 mins, it looked if any team was gunna take the spoils it would be Sunderland, but suddenly Gohouri of Wigan cleared his lines with a long high clearance deep into the Sunderland half which Wes Brown firstly looked like he dealt with well at first but when he got the ball back from Westwood he took a loose touch, Wigan capitalised from this error and squared for Franco Di Santo who tapped in, it would be the decisive kick of the game as boo’s and jeers rang unfortunately around the Stadium Of Light @ the final whistle.
