SUNDERLAND (4-2-3-1):

6 Guarantor: He started for the first time this season and could do little against the Wycombe winner

6 C McLaughlin: A solid performance and made one of the rare attempts in front of goal

6 Willis: Had the enviable job of managing Akinfenwa and did well against the giant

5 Lynch: His collision with Wheeler in the first half would have nearly won a penalty for Wycombe

5 Hume: Returned to the side and done little wrong – could occasionally come forward

5 power: A disappointing afternoon for the midfielder who could not dictate the game

5 lead bitter: The captain was withdrawn after a hard afternoon in Buckinghamshire with 20 minutes remaining

6 Watmore: Well prepared for his first start of the season, but understandably, it's getting late

4 O'Nien: Responsible for the free-kick that gave Wycombe the goal, an action that summed up his day

5 McGeady: His impressive stoppage performance was the culmination of an otherwise disappointing performance

5 Wyke: The striker struggled for great progress in the game and was injured at half-time with an ankle injury


6 GRIGG (for Wyke, 46): Came in for the second half and revived the Sunderland attack, though it had faded

5 Maguire (for Watmore, 62): Used to change the game, but could not achieve the desired effect

5 McNulty (for Leadbitter, 70): Has been hard to make a big impact in his 20 minutes on the field

(not used): J. McLaughlin (gk), Gooch, Flanagan, Dobson

Man of the Game: WESLEY CHARLES – The central defense of Wycombe was consistently defensive secured – and did the thing with the only goal of the game.
