HIGHLIGHTS | Sunderland 4 Rovers 1

14 February 2021

Goals and highlights from defeat at the Stadium of Light.

A combination of Aiden McGeady and Charlie Wyke bore fruit four times as Rovers slipped to consecutive defeats for the first time since October.

Wyke’s first-half hat-trick had given Rovers a mountain to climb but an own goal by keeper Lee Burge early in the second half had provided a glimmer of hope before Wyke and McGeady combined for a fourth.

A better second 45 saw Rovers win two penalties, but they were unable to convert either and ultimately Sunderland were able to see out the game.
