It was a counter attack after we could have scored. Still early days.

Charlton have some pace. Jack Ross needs to adjust things here.

Our midfield needs a tweak or two as well.

The problem as I see it is our two central defenders look a little slow while their forwards have pace. I am sure Jack Ross has noticed this too. Its when we are going forward where we need to watch out for the counter attack. Haway Jack, sort that out now!

The Sunderland fans know the score here. I would take a draw in this game now.
