Player Ratings: Coventry 1-0 Sunderland - Here’s how the Lads rated after today’s poor display

Sunderland weren’t at the races today, losing 1-0 away to Coventry. Here’s how our man watching the match rated the Lads in red and white this afternoon.

Jon McLaughlin: 5/10

Caught out by Matty Godden’s accurate finish, didn’t have the best kicking day either.

Jordan Willis: 5/10

Hard to remember too many great moments from Willis outside of an early important clearance, one of many Sunderland players who didn’t show enough quality in possession.

Alim Ozturk: 5/10

Struggled with the pace of the game, was caught flat-footed for the opener, and got away with suspect defending during a late first half penalty shout.

Tom Flanagan: 5/10

Sunderland’s best defender on the day, but badly exposed with the ball, his touch and passing simply weren’t up to scratch.

Luke O’Nien: 6/10

Showcased his usual synergy with Chris Maguire and was among the team’s most tenacious and active pressers.

Max Power: 6/10

Another who got through a lot of work without the ball, Power’s passing inconsistent however.

George Dobson: 7/10

A typically industrious display in the middle, had the odd mishap in the middle, but played with intelligence and aggression for the most part.

Denver Hume: 3/10

A total disaster. Choked in the most important game of his career, looked timid with and without the ball.

Chris Maguire: 5/10

His corners were excellent, but his production in open play was totally lacking. A baffling no show from our most important player.

Lynden Gooch: 5/10

Struggled to create chances for himself or his teammates.

Charlie Wyke: 5/10

Used his physicality well and won a series of headers all afternoon, but yet again with Wyke, you have to mention a massive missed chance.

(SUB) Kyle Lafferty: 7/10

Made a real difference adding energy and quality to our attack.

(SUB) Antoine Semenyo: 4/10

Gave away two costly fouls, couldn’t impact the game in an attacking perspective.
