Ron-Thorben Hoffmann: 10/10
Perfect performance from the goalkeeper. Kept a clean sheet and is looking increasingly assured at the back.
Carl Winchester: 10/10
No goal for Winchester today but did pick up an assist to go along with his perfect performance.
Tom Flanagan: 10/10
A perfect performance once again, having a great season so far and very comfortable today.
Bailey Wright: 10/10
Stepped in today following Callum Doyle’s injury, had a perfect performance at the back and even popped up with the opening goal.
Niall Huggins: 10/10
Perfect performance on his full league debut. A terrier out of possession and electric going forward.
Corry Evans: 10/10
Completely controlled the game, looked a class above the opposition and set up his midfield partner for the fourth goal. Perfect.
Luke O’Nien: 10/10
Scored a goal, got forward to support the attacking players and didn’t let the Cheltenham midfield have a moment’s peace. Another perfect display.
Aiden McGeady: 10/10
Two assists for McGeady on a perfect day for the winger. Toyed with the visitor’s defence all evening.
Aiden O’Brien: 10/10
While his team-mates may get the headlines, O’Brien put in a hard working perfect performance that helped the others run riot.
Nathan Broadhead: 10/10
Never stopped running, showed a lot of intelligence for the second and third goals and looks far too good for this level. Yet another perfect performance.
Ross Stewart: 10/10
Unsurprisingly perfect from Stewart. Cheltenham couldn’t handle him on the air or on the ground, fully deserved his two goals.
Frederik Alves (55mins): 10/10
Came on to give Flanagan a breather and looked perfectly assured alongside Bailey Wright.
Leon Dajaku (60mins): 10/10
Took McGeady’s place and smashed a left-footed effort into the top corner. Perfect.
Alex Pritchard (73mins): 10/10
Brought on to replace Stewart and was perfect as Sunderland saw out the romp.
Man of the Match: Nathan Broadhead
Unbelievable display from the on-loan Broadhead. Ran the Cheltenham defence ragged all day and I have no idea how he didn’t pick up either a goal or even an assist. Brilliant dummy for Stewart’s first which will go down as a Winchester assist and then a great dinked through ball for McGeady to roll the ball across goal for a Stewart tap-in. Perfect!
