After dropping 5 points in our last two games we are fortunate to have promotion still in our own hands.

I find it easy to find fault, point a finger and look for the negatives but fortunately in Ross we have a manager who shares my philosophy of positive attitude, that said we need more this week than positive attitudes.

Ross laid it bare in his reaction to the loss, no names mentioned but we all know who was at fault today and IMO it was more than just Flanagan and Baldwin.

Ross needs work on Cattermole, McGeady and Maguire to get them fit, all three will be needed.

What he does with our defence I honestly have no idea but I feel at least one of Flanagan and Baldwin need a rest.

Over to you Jack, lets stop the rot on Friday.

I'm with you Syd in not targeting individuals on the pitch but was it disorganised CB's given we conceded five as even poor DCM's in front shouldn't have be able to cause that much carnage in ninety.

I find it hard to believe how disjointed a display it was, big Charlie put in by far the best performance from a Sunderland player. He Morgan and oviedo were badly let down by the rest.

Jack Ross admits his side played into Coventry City's hands after coming out the losing side of a nine-goal thriller at the Stadium of Light.

Ross had set his side up in an expansive manner, sticking with the 4-4-2 shape that they have used in recent weeks.

Jack Ross was left frustrated with his player's use of possession in a 5-4 defeat to Coventry City




They always looked a threat in attack but the away side caused havoc on the counter, spurning a number of good openings to increase their lead even further in the first half.

Forward Luke Thomas and Bright Enobakhare in particular were a constant thorn in the home side.

Ross was left particularly frustrated by the fact that three of Coventry's goal came from moves that start with Sunderland gifting the ball away.
"You can't use it [expansive style] as an excuse because in your preparation you then have to have a balance about how the opposition can hurt you," Ross said.
"The truth is, I think Coventry are a good team and what they have in forward areas is good, I thought they were clinical with their finishing.
"But we played our own part in creating the opportunities by the decision making because when you play in a certain way, you have to make the right decisions with the ball in particular.


"Defending is just about as much when you have the ball and then when you go 3-1 down it's difficult to then make the game tighter. You've got to take the chance. The problem was today we were continually chasing the game."
Ross stuck with his shape for the second half, throwing on Aiden McGeady and Kazaiah Sterling after Jordan Shipley had made it 4-3 shortly after the interval.
The Black Cats boss admitted that McGeady, who has missed the last two games three games through injury, was 'miles off being fit'.
"The first double substitution, Aiden is miles off being fit," Ross said.


"He hasn't trained at all, we probably gambled with more time on the pitch than we should have done but he wanted to give it a go. So him and Kaz coming on was to chase the game, Benji coming on is obviously the last role of the dice given that he's an 18-year-old who hasn't played a lot."


Ross said he would use the short break before the visit of Doncaster Rovers next week to assess who is best equipped for a crucial weekend.
"Having this longest gap we've had for a while allows me to reflect on and assess the ones that are best equipped with what mentally lies ahead," Ross said.
"It's another good team we face on Friday and there'll be the pressure again."
