Sunderland picked up their first English Championship win of the season on Sunday with an impressive 3-1 victory away to Norwich City.
Aiden McGeady and Lewis Grabban were the stars on the day, McGeady netting a superb long range effort before assisting Grabban, who scored a double on the day.
It was something of a bizarre hat-trick for Grabban though as he also netted at the other end of the pitch with an own goal consolation for the Canaries.
Former Celtic man McGeady was in sparkling form throughout the match and appears to have the potential to be one of the bargain Championship signings of the season. He had an excellent campaign on loan at Preston North End last term and looks intent on bringing that form into this season after completing a permanent move from Everton.
Black Cats fans were of course delighted with the result after last weekend’s draw and took to Twitter to enthuse about new signings Grabban and McGeady…
Mags have the premier league I'm happy with the championship! McGeady is god 🔴⚪️🔴⚪️ #Safc

Savvy business from SG. Long may this organisation continue. McGeady and Grabban look the real at this level. Hope they stay fit #SAFC

Weird how long I've wanted McGeady at Sunderland and even more so how in love with him I am when he's in a red and white shirt
