Jordan Willis and Ross Stewart are ruled out for Sunderland today Lee Johnson remembers Lee Burge, Conor McLaughlin, Luke O’Nien, Callum McFadzean, Lynden Gooch, and Dion Sanderson

James Hunter and Matty Hewitt are at the Stadium of Light today to bring you the latest information

Charlie Wyke and Lee Burge made history at the Stadium of Light when Sunderland beat Doncaster Rovers to rekindle their promotion challenge

Wyke became the first man to score four goals in one game in the stadium, while Burge was the first goalkeeper to save two penalties in one game since the club moved home in 1997

Burge then scored an unlucky own goal when the ball came back off the post and hit him before crossing the line

This made Wyke the first Sunderland player to score four goals in a game since Kevin Phillips did so in a 5-2 win at Bury in April 1999, and the first to do so at Wearside since Craig Russell did so in a 6 did -0 win over Millwall at Roker Park in December 1995

Sunderland gave its promotion rivals a warning sign that they are far from finished in the battle for promotion to the championship

Lee Johnson’s crew made a real statement of intent when they beat Doncaster Rovers at the Stadium of Light

Here are some of the key points as the Black Cats celebrated their fifth league win under Lee Johnson

McGeady, O’Brien, Wyke, and McFadzean combine with seven or eight brilliant short passes to get McGeady going

He storms forward, but drags his shot past the right post from a distance of 25 meters

Scowen tries to hit the ball to the back post, hits the crossbar and jumps out

A few crazy moments at the Stadium of Light O’Nien falls on the ball after a foul and the referee awards a penalty

Aiden McGeady bursts down on the left and hits the ball towards Wyke while shooting another header into the goal

McGeady turns his man (again) in the middle and rolls the ball far to Gooch

He drives towards the pit, cuts into it, but the effort is high and far from Balcombe’s goal

He plays it to McGeady, who hits Halliday again, but this time his cross is too heavy and it goes out for a kick

Scowen throws the ball past his marker and tries to cross in the direction of Wyke, but Rovers scratches clear
