Jon McLaughlin: 7/10

Kept Sunderland in it, in a much more open second half, showcased brilliant reactions on several occasions.

Jordan Willis: 5/10

Lacked his usual sharpness and was caught out on a few occasions.

Alim Ozturk: 6/10

Sunderland’s most impressive defender, alert throughout and decent in possession, the Turkish stopper also managed a few crunching tackles.

Joel Lynch: 4/10

Started the game well, but his decision-making and passing nosedived from there, way too wasteful on the ball.

Luke O’Nien: 7/10

The only player apart from George Dobson who matched Sunday’s intensity levels, a relentless performance, that will sadly be overshadowed by a shocking second half miss.

Denver Hume: 6/10

Mixed display, paired some excellent crosses with poor giveaways.

George Dobson: 7/10

One of his more assured displays, brought his usual tenacity too.

Max Power: 6/10

Produced some excellent passes in the first half, guilty of trying too much and holding onto the ball for too long on other occasions.

Lynden Gooch: 5/10

Could have had two assists if his teammate’s finishing had been up to scratch, but that would have masked a tired disappointing display.

Chris Maguire: 6/10

Another who failed to match his Doncaster heroics, looked flat, but crucially made no mistake from the penalty spot.

Charlie Wyke: 6/10

Made two poor errors in the build-up to Fleetwood’s opener, before conceding a controversial penalty. Wyke did improve after his horrendous start and was desperately unfortunate, hitting the inside of the post with a guided header.

(SUB) Duncan Watmore: 6/10

Not a lot came off Watmore, but he did manage to win Maguire’s all important penalty.

(SUB) Marc McNulty: 6/10

Nearly scored with a super curling effort.
