PLAYER RATINGS: Lincoln 2-0 Sunderland - Here’s how the Lads rated after dreadful performance

New, comments

Sunderland were God awful at Sincil Bank today, losing 2-0 without mustering anything resembling a fight against struggling Lincoln. Here’s how our man watching the match rated the Sunderland players.

Jon McLaughlin: 4/10

When it rains it pours. Another match altering mistake from the Scotland international.

Conor McLaughlin: 5/10

Mixed bag again. At times McLaughlin looked like our most composed player, at other points in the match he was hoofing the ball away aimlessly.

Jordan Willis: 6/10

Solid if unspectacular, a couple excellent defensive headers were the highlight of a forgettable performance.

Joel Lynch: 5/10

Picked up a cheap yellow card and struggled at times with the movement of Lincoln’s front three.

Laurens De Bock: 3/10

A total embarrassment defensively, lacking any awareness, physical strength or footballing intelligence.

Max Power: 5/10

The one Sunderland player who showed both intent and calmness in the Imps’ half, still guilty of trying to force play too often.

Dylan McGeouch: 4/10

For all his excellent positioning and instincts at some point a holding midfielder has to show some fight and aggression, the Scotsman showed neither.

Luke O’Nien: 5/10

Needs to play with more intelligence in and out of possession.

Chris Maguire: 4/10

Set the tone for an awful afternoon with some of the worst, most lazy, unintelligent passing you will ever see.

Lynden Gooch: 5/10

Needed to show more quality with his final ball, once again the American squandered excellent crossing opportunities.

Charlie Wyke: 5/10

Struggled to hold up the ball or win aerial duels, unless bailed out by the referee.

(SUB) Marc McNulty: 5/10

A non-factor in the game

(SUB) Aiden McGeady: 5/10

Created little and wasted possession often.

(SUB) Will Grigg: 5/10

Barely involved.
