Elliot Embleton and Ross “The Loch Ness Drogba” Stewart got the goals as Sunderland secured their long overdue return to the Championship

Patrick Roberts scored on the final day of last season to help send Sheffield Wednesday down to League One, and the winger condemned the Owls to another season in the third tier with a stoppage-time winner to put Sunderland 90 minutes away from promotion.
The match was heading into extra-time after Lee Gregory slid the ball home to cancel out Ross Stewart’s first-leg winner but Roberts pounced in the 10 minutes of time added on to earn victory for Sunderland thanks to fine work by Jack Clarke on the left, who tricked his way inside the box before fizzing the ball into the path of Roberts. The duo once cost a combined £21m, which proved handy to Alex Neil.Continue reading...
