Lee Burge: 5/10
Looked unconvincing parrying chances back out into danger and lost his duel moving too early when Joe Pigott scored from the spot.
Conor McLaughlin: 3/10
Didn’t show enough composure or quality, tried do too much and went for a Hollywood pass that didn’t come off too often and gave away the ball a lot as well.
Dion Sanderson: 6/10
Passed well, if perhaps a bit too cautiously and showed good instincts on the odd occasion Wimbledon attacked Sunderland’s right hand side.
Bailey Wright: 7/10
Scored a wonderful half volley to pull Sunderland level, in an otherwise unspectacular performance. Wright’s passing was mostly accurate and safe, and he didn’t have to do too much defending.
Callum McFadzean: 4/10
Made two dreadful mistakes back-to-back to giveaway a needless penalty. Was sloppy in possession and offered little threat going forwards.
Grant Leadbitter: 3/10
Outside of one excellent early ball Leadbitter disappointed. His decision-making was mostly poor, too often like McLaughlin, Leadbitter looked for the defence-splitting pass too early rather than drawing players out of position to create space.
George Dobson: 5/10
Barely had a positive effect on the game. Dobson did find himself in dangerous areas a few times, but was let down by his touch or ability to see a final paas.
Elliot Embleton: 6/10
Took good risks to try and set up his teammates, had a majority of Sunderland’s best passes on the night,
Jack Diamond: 6/10
Showed his game-changing dribbling ability once or twice, but for the most part Diamond was restricted, like a lot of his teammates he was too impatient and gave the ball away cheaply.
Aiden O’Brien: 6/10
Was the one Sunderland player who seemed to find time and space in the final third at ease, unfortunately he couldn’t always use that time to create a goal-scoring chance.
Will Grigg: 5/10
Barely involved in Sunderland’s build-up, missed the couple half chances he had to score.
(SUB) Lynden Gooch: 6/10
Was lively and aggressive in his pressing, but didn’t have many moments to attack the Wimbledon backline.
(SUB) Mitch Curry: 5/10
Botched his first touch on his one half chance to score.
(SUB) Jordan Willis: 5/10
Looked awkward in a strange cameo at right back.
