Jon McLaughlin 6/10:

Distributed the ball well and barely had a save to make.

Luke O’Nien 6/10:

At fault for the goal, but contributed well going forward.

Jordan Willis 7/10:

Dealt well with Wimbledon’s rare forrays forward with relative ease.

Alim Ozturk 8/10:

Looks a completely different player from the one banished to the reserves last summer. His passing has come on leaps and bounds this season.

Denver Hume 6/10:

Looked nervy early on, but started to showcase his great dribbling and some improved passing after he settled down.

Max Power 5/10:

His decision-making and quality in the final third was lacking - Power did get through some important defensive work, but needs to show more passing quality to maintain his place in the team.

Grant Leadbitter 7/10:

Looked leggy off the ball at times, but once again proved a real asset with his tempo-setting passing.

Lynden Gooch 6/10:

Was tidy in possession and used the ball more effectively than at Rochdale, but rarely looked threatening in front of goal.

Aiden McGeady 7/10:

Came to life in the second half, creating problems and helped increase the quality of chances Sunderland were creating.

Chris Maguire 9/10:

The hattrick hero, scored three very different, but vital goals for the lads.

Charlie Wyke 8/10:

Battled well and showed great quality whenever Sunderland went direct towards him.

(SUB) Will Grigg 5/10:

Missed a golden chance to seal the game and looked lethargic in his attempts to retain possession.

(SUB) Dylan McGeouch 6/10:

Put Sunderland on the back foot with a lazy pass immediately after being brought on, redeemed himself with tireless defensive work afterwards.

(SUB) George Dobson - n/a

Barely involved in a ten minute cameo.
