Sunderland 0-2 Ipswich Town report: New signings unable to stop Black Felines’ slide

By  | 

Sunderland’s new signings might not prevent the Black Felines’ slide continuing, as they were swept aside by Ipswich Town.

Black Felines boss Chris Coleman offered debuts to all 3 of his due date day loan additions– goalkeeper Lee Camp, midfielder Ovie Ejaria, and striker Ashley Fletcher– but while they revealed pledge, it was the same old protective frailties that reversed the Wearsiders.

Joe Garner made the most of bad safeguarding from stand-in centre-back Billy Jones to offer the visitors the lead ten minutes prior to half-time, and then an own-goal from Adam Matthews in injury time at the end of the very first duration implied there was no other way back.Former Sunderland guy Martyn Waghorn might have inflicted even more damage, hitting the woodwork from a free-kick when the game was still goalless, and after that missing the target in an one-on-one scenario in the second half.
