The latest on what happens when the Black Cats take on Swindon Town in today’s League One fixture

Black Cats head coach Lee Johnson is looking for a response from his side following the 2-2 draw at Crewe over the weekend

While this resulted in a dramatic late comeback to deserve a point, dissatisfied with a large portion of the performance and hoping for a better night

Sunderland is obviously in good shape and could move up to fourth if the results go their way tonight

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

Charlie Wyke scored his 19th Goal of the season to sink Swindon Town and send Sunderland to fourth place in the table

The Black Cats struggled to create clear openings against the Robins until Wyke headed home a free kick 20 minutes from time

That goal proved crucial, although Sunderland should have added more goals, but they missed the opportunity to punish Swindon at half-time

And that meant they had to breathe a sigh of relief in added time when Scott Twine hit the crossbar with a free kick when the visitors were inches from a point

But the win means Sunderland have moved up one place, narrowing the gap between themselves and the automatic promotion spots to five points – and they still have two games in the hands of runner-up Hull City

Sunderland is recycling it and it is hurled into O’Nien rattling from behind It falls on Wyke, but it rocks away from him

Gooch cuts into it and drills a shot from the edge of the area behind which Trueman turns to the corner

McGeady looks like he missed the opportunity to score a cross, but he drops his target and hits the ball on the back post

It only took a touch of a Sunderland shirt, but Swindon turned it for a corner behind him

Luckily he gets enough to play it to Sanderson and they get away with the ball

Sunderland was disappointed with a determined Swindon in the first half of the League One clash at the Stadium of Light tonight

Lee Johnson made two changes, starting Carl Winchester and Jordan Jones in place of Conor McLaughlin and Aiden O’Brien

Sunderland’s first big chance went to Charlie Wyke, who shot far after brilliant work by Lynden Gooch

The Robins had saved two early free kicks from Lee Burge, but otherwise it was one-way traffic with few clear-cut chances
