Sunderland maintained their unbeaten run in the 2018-19 campaign after winning against AFC Wimbledon on Saturday.
The Black Cats are flying high in League One this season, and after their 2-1 victory over Wimbledon, Jack Ross’s side find themselves second in the league with 13 points from five games.
The hosts took the early lead at Kingsmeadow through Joe Pigott, but Sunderland staged a superb comeback with veteran midfielder Lee Cattermole scoring twice.
Wimbledon looked more threatening in the first half, but after the interval, it was Sunderland who created better chances. In the end, they were deserved winners but it was a hard earned three points.
Sunderland defender Jack Baldwin took to social networking site Twitter after the match to express his reaction. He admitted that it was not the prettiest of wins but was happy with the result.
Not the prettiest of games today… But 3 points at the end of it is all that matters! Good end to a big week
