Sunderland fans were left heartbroken yet again as their side just couldn’t hold on to secure three points at home on Tuesday night.
With just four games to go, Sunderland need to make up six points on Bolton if they are to avoid back to back relegations.
Chris Coleman’s side looked to have secured a precious three points on Tuesday night against Norwich, as George Honeyman made up for Aiden McGeady’s first half penalty miss by grabbing the opener.
Once again the Black Cats shot themselves in the foot though, as Ivo Pinto grabbed an 89th minute equaliser from a Norwich corner.
The late Norwich goal reeked of everything that’s been going wrong at the Stadium of Light this season. Not only do Chris Coleman’s side seem to concede either just before half time or right before full time every week, they have struggled massively to defend set pieces.
Supporters have been infuriated all season by the poor defending at corners, and an 89th minute goal from a corner to all but secure relegation has devastated fans.

Manager and his staff were all ex defenders yet can't defend set pieces. Struggling to see where the coaching is in this side. I understand it's difficult but come on. A non league team can defend set pieces.

I think we can’t defend and can’t score #doomed

It’s minging that. Didn’t really care if it was to help keep us up, just would’ve been nice to win a game.

Not looking forward to a full season of league one football. But then again, can it be any worse than this season??
