Leon Dajaku opened the scoring for Sunderland in their 1-1 draw with Oxford United to net his third goal in English football.

The German winger, who is currently on a season-long loan from Union Berlin has slotted into a wing back role in recent weeks but was restored in his preferred position against Karl Robinson’s men. The game presented an opportunity for the Black Cats to go level on points with leading trio Rotherham United, Wigan Athletic and Wycombe Wanderers with the majority of other third tier clubs in FA Cup action this weekend.

  ‘The state of that back four’, ‘I give up’ – These Sunderland fans react to Lee Johnson’s line-up for Ipswich clash The pressure is very much on Lee Johnson as league football returns for Sunderland in a crunch fixture with Ipswich Town at the Stadium of Light. As exclusively reported by Football League World earlier this week, there is a growing feeling that Johnson should be doing better with what he has on Wearside and the results […]As exclusively reported by Football League World earlier this week, there is a growing feeling that Johnson should be doing better with what he has on Wearside and the results need to improve very soon.

Oxford United provided stiff opposition and have competed in the League One play-offs in each of the last two seasons, contributing to a very evenly matched affair at the Stadium of Light.

The goal will give Dajaku’s confidence a world of good and should go some way to cementing his place in the starting XI. Lee Johnson’s men are still potentially only one win away from topping the tree with just five points separating first and eighth in the division.

Sunderland will fancy their chances when they host Morecambe on Tuesday evening with the 20th placed visitors looking firmly over their shoulders.

Here, we have taken a look at some of the best of the reaction from Sunderland fans on Twitter to Dajaku seventh minute goal…
