Sunderland fans have one major concern in pre-season

Sunderland fans have been discussing the lack of goals from their strikers, and to say fans are concerned about the upcoming campaign would be an understatement.

The Black Cats fell short of automatic promotion by six points last season, which is made all the more infuriating by the fact they drew a whopping 15 out of 46 league games 1-1.

Jack Ross is struggling massively to figure out how to break teams down, open games up and find that second or third goal that would put the match to bed.

And the fans, who were forced to watch two separate Wembley heartbreaks last season, are now worried that the lack of attacking fluidity has spread to their strikers in pre-season.

Ross’ side have beaten South Shields 2-0, drawn 0-0 with Benfica B and been beaten 1-0 by Belenenses so far this summer, but none of the front men in the squad have found the back of the net.

Will Grigg and Charlie Wyke combined for just eight goals in 47 league appearances last term, and a similar output this time around would make it extremely difficult to earn promotion.

Plenty of fans are sharing this concern, as you can see from the Twitter reactions down below…
