Breaking News ! Charlie Wyke and Chris Maguire scored on their return to the side as Sunderland eased past Swindon Town at the County Ground. Phil Parkinson continued his policy of rotating his frontmen, and it paid off with Wyke notching his first league goal of the season just before half-time, while Maguire earned and then converted a penalty shortly before the hour. The victory extended Sunderland’s unbeaten start to the League One campaign to five games, and saw the Wearsiders climb to fifth in the table – three points behind leaders Ipswich, and with a game in hand on all four clubs above them. The inclusion of Wyke and Maguire, at the expense of Danny Graham and Aiden O’Brien, were among four changes Parkinson made to the side that started the last league game at Charlton Athletic a fortnight ago. Conor McLaughlin came into the side at right wingback, with Luke O’Nien shifting to the left side of the back three to replace the suspended Tom Flanagan.

Will Grigg was named amongst the subs after recovering from a shin injury, and young centre-back Ollie Younger was also on the bench. Swindon boss Richie Wellens made three changes to the side that started last weekend’s home defeat against AFC Wimbledon. He brought in Rob Hunt, Akin Odimayo, and Tyler Smith, in place of Jordan Stevens, Jon Smith, and the injured Brett Pitman. Sunderland dominated in the first half, but clear-cut chances were few and far between. Grant Leadbitter almost caught out Swindon keeper Matej Kovar with a free-kick from just inside the Robins’ half, but the on-loan Manchester United man just about managed to backpedal and push the ball round the post. Sunderland then suffered a blow inside the first 20 minutes when Jordan Willis picked up a knock in a challenge which left him in need of treatment and, despite trying to continue for a few minutes, he had to go off.

. The breakthrough came on 37 minutes, when Gooch delivered a dangerous cross from the left and the defence went AWOL as Wyke was left unmarked to volley home from eight yards. O’Nien saw a header from a corner saved on the line, and Maguire drove a free-kick into the sidenetting from a tight angle as Sunderland finished the half strongly. Swindon made a couple of changes at half-time which sparked an improvement in the early stages of the second period, and Sunderland keeper Lee Burge was fortunate to get away with clearing the ball straight at Tyler Smith before he eventually scrambled it away at the second attempt. But just when it seemed Swindon were beginning to build up a head of steam, Sunderland hit them on the counter-attack. The move started with Diamond winnng a tackle on the edge of his own penalty area, Power then picked out Maguire with an excellent pass and as he was preparing to shoot he was upended inside the penalty area by former Middlesbrough defender Jonathan Grounds. Chris Maguire of Sunderland scores the second goal from the penalty spot during the Sky Bet League One match between Swindon Town and Sunderland at County Ground on October 17, 2020 Referee Ben Toner immediately pointed to the spot, and Maguire converted, sending the ball straight down the middle as the keeper dived to his right, to double Sunderland’s lead with 57 minutes on the clock. Scowen saw a shot well saved by Kovar with 20 minutes remaining, but with a two-goal cushion there was no need for Sunderland to push for a third and risk leaving gaps that might have allowed Swindon back into the game. Instead the Black Cats were content to manage the game, and it was a sign of their success in doing so that Swindon had to wait until the 93 rd minute until they finally forced Burge into a save, and he was equal to substitute Hallam Hope’s effort. SWINDON TOWN: Kovar, Hunt (Stevens 46), Odimayo, Baudry, Grounds, Donohue, M Smith, Grant, Jaiyesimi (J Smith 46), Payne, T Smith (Hope 58). Subs not used: Fryer, Curran, Caddis, Grant BOOKED: Donohue, M Smith, Grounds SUNDERLAND: Burge, Willis (Diamond 19), Wright, O’Nien, McLaughlin, Scowen, Leadbitter, Power, Gooch, Maguire (O’Brien 89), Wyke. Subs not used: Matthews, Dobson, Graham, Grigg, Younger REFEREE: Ben Toner (Lancashire)
