Loads of Sunderland fans have been reacting to a major fitness boost, and they think it should impact the way they line up this weekend.
Sunderland travel to Wimbledon this weekend off the back of a brilliant 4-1 win at Gillingham, and fans are hoping to see Bryan Ovideo back in the side.
The Costa Rican wing back missed the win at Gillingham due to a knock he picked up against Scunthorpe, but the 28 year-old has linked up with the squad again.
Jack Ross now has a bit of a selection headache on his hands, as Reece James was excellent at left-back against Gillingham.

On one hand, it feels harsh to drop a new signing who has just put in a wonderful performance, but Oviedo is undoubtedly a class above most of the players in League One.
The flying full back was one of the few bright spots last season, most notably his wonderful goal against Millwall.
They say you shouldn’t change a winning team, but fans want Ross to squeeze their favourite Costa Rican back in, and you can find the best Twitter reactions down below…
Easy one, if Oviedo is fit he plays

James left back Oviedo left midfield

For me, Oviedo should be starting if fully fit. Started season off very well.

I would personally play Oviedo if fit as it’s an away game and give Reece a chance during home games to get more game time

Canny! Selection headache potentially then. What does Jack Ross do? Would be harsh on James to be dropped after he did so well last night, but Oviedo is clearly a class above at this level.

James can play RB as well as LB can’t he? Providing they are fit, for me it should be Matthews and Oviedo every time.

If Oviedo is staying, he plays. If not, he doesn’t.
