Sunderland fans react after Chris Maguire fractures his fibula

Sunderland fans have taken to Twitter to react after it was revealed that Chris Maguire would be out for up to eight weeks after breaking his leg.

The injury happened in the first half of the Black Cats’ 4-2 win over Gillingham on Tuesday night, and his absence will be a huge miss for Jack Ross as he attempts to guide his side back into the Championship at the first time of asking.

Maguire has been an excellent acquisition for the Wearsiders since arriving from Bury in the summer, scoring seven goals in 35 appearances so far this season to help his teammates sit third in the table.

Should the club make it into the Checkatrade Trophy final – they still have to face Bristol Rovers in the semi-final – Maguire is expected to miss the trip to Wembley as well unless he performs a minor miracle in his recovery.
