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.
