The latest from the Black Cats’ home game against Wigan as they look for three key points before their new head coach is announced

The Black Cats need a win after four League One games with only three points collected. Tuesday’s 1-1 draw with Burton was their third such result in a row and they have to beat Wigan today.

Sunderland today named new head coach Lee Johnson. The former head of Bristol City is now in charge of the team.

Luke O’Nien, Charlie Wyke, Lynden Gooch and Jordan Willis are on hiatus today, but Aiden McGeady is expected to be part of the roster.

James Hunter and Matty Hewitt are at the Stadium of Light to bring you the latest information.

Sunderland is warming up a back four this afternoon when Lee Johnson coines the Black Cats side.

Hume and McLaughlin will play both sides of Wright and Flanagan in the heart of defense.

Lee Johnson’s appointment as head coach was confirmed in the basement just over two hours before kick-off against Wigan. The new man was thrown straight down as he took his place in the underbrush against the Latics.

Bringing Aiden McGeady with him from the cold, the former Republic of Ireland man was back by the side for the first time in 13 months and was added to the starting line-up in place of graduate graduate Elliot Embleton.

McGeady’s return was one of four changes Johnson made to the team that played at home against Burton Albion mid-week. Two of them were forced upon him through injuries to Luke O’Nien and leading goalscorer Charlie Wyke.

McGeady for Embleton is interesting. People have been asking for teens like Embleton to start working for ages, but it was dropped to bring back 34yo McGeady. Brave decision – hope it works.

Bringing Aiden McGeady with him from the cold, the former Republic of Ireland man was back by the side for the first time in 13 months and was added to the starting line-up in place of graduate graduate Elliot Embleton.

McGeady’s return was one of four changes Johnson made to the team that played at home against Burton Albion mid-week. Two of them were forced upon him through injuries to Luke O’Nien and leading goalscorer Charlie Wyke.

Chris Maguire took over from O’Nien, while Will Grigg took over from Wyke.

On the other change, Lee Burge returned to goal instead of Remi Matthews after the latter made a mistake against Burton that resulted in the visitors’ goal.

There was also a change in shape when Johnson switched to a back four and a 4-3-3 system.

The Black Cats face a Wigan side who haven’t won the league since beating Doncaster 1-0 in October.

Last time, the Latics threw away an early lead when they were defeated 2-1 by Lincoln City.

They’ve only picked up one point in their last five games – a 0-0 draw with Bristol Rovers.

This is where the Black Cats are sure to start their advancement spurt under the new gaffer Lee Johnson.

“The role of our head coach will be critical in executing the strategy we have jointly established.

This focused approach allowed us to profile the position and after a rigorous process, I felt Lee was the standout candidate.

« I think he understands the complexity of the project and I look forward to supporting him in his role to bring sustainable success to the football club. ”

“When I spoke to Kristjaan, Jim and the owners, I was absolutely blown away by their plans and dreams for the club. I can see so much potential and I see it everywhere.

« I see it in the league and how we can improve, I see it in the facilities, I see it in the community and in the passion people in Sunderland have, and I see it in the academy too.

« The feeling I got from the owner group [made this the right club for me]. There was another interest, but it doesn’t matter now and I want to be successful and see a beautiful new Sunderland.

« I want to be brave in my own decisions, I want to be brave for the team, how we play and what philosophy we play by, but I also want the club to make brave decisions and that’s what. « I really did my shopping.

« We have to connect the team and the fan base because that can be very powerful in a club like this. ”

Sunderland captain Max Power says he is only focused on securing a crucial win for the Black Cats when they take on Wigan Athletic on Saturday.

The Wearsiders had a tumultuous week with Phil Parkinson fired as manager on Sunday night.

Thanks to Power’s late equalizer, they only drew 1-1 against Burton Albion, the first division fighter, on Tuesday. With no new manager appointed, coach Andrew Taylor will take responsibility for the first-team affair in the basement with Wigan arriving at the Stadium of Light.

It’s a game against his former club for 27-year-old Power, who spent three seasons at Wigan before signing for Sunderland.

And while the Black Cats have so far escaped promotion from the first division, Power has managed this feat twice with the Latics and won the title both times.

While the players wait for the news from the next manager, Power says they will only focus on scoring three points this weekend.

« We have obviously had some difficult days at the club, » he told the Sunderland official website. « It’s never nice when a manager loses his job – and right now there is great uncertainty.

« But Tayls (Andrew Taylor), Nick Allamby and Lee Butler who took the reins must pay tribute and I am sure they are injured. « .

“We can only go on and hopefully the managerial situation can be resolved this week – and we can try to make this season a successful one.

« We expect a really tough game because they have great players. It’s an amazing club and I know they are transitioning themselves, but they still have a goal and goal to be at the top of the division.

« Your squad is full of good players, and I’ve also managed to work with some of the guys up there. So it will be nice to see some familiar faces.

« I really enjoyed working with Max Power and Will Grigg. First and foremost, they’re both really good guys on the pitch, and they’re both excellent professionals on the pitch too.

« While their season is probably not going as smoothly as they’d like, I’m sure Sunderland will be up there by the end of the season. « 

Sunderland will bring winger Aiden McGeady out of the cold. The former Republic of Ireland international joins matchday’s squad today.

McGeady last played for Sunderland in November of last year, before being dropped by manager Phil Parkinson, and was then loaned to Charlton Athletic in January.

McGeady has trained with the U23s this season, but after Parkinson’s release last weekend, the 34-year-old is back in the group.

McGeady last played a first-team game for Charlton in July and has struggled with injuries since then.

His only game action so far this season was an U23 game against Crystal Palace last month, when he played for an hour before being substituted off.

Sunderland will be without Luke O’Nien until the new year after he dislocated his shoulder against Burton Albion midweek.

And leading scorer Charlie Wyke was dismissed from today’s game against League One cellar champion Wigan Athletic at the Stadium of Light after sustaining a knee injury against the Brewers.

O’Nien suffered an uncomfortable fall towards the end of the game and was in pain when he was substituted in in added time.

Caretaker manager Andrew Taylor said after the game that O’Nien’s injury looked « nasty » and appeared to be a dislocation, and the club have now confirmed it is.

O’Nien will have to undergo additional tests over the next week to determine the full extent of the injury. However, it is expected to fail in January at the earliest.

Wyke was substituted on by Burton in the first half after he hit his knee, which immediately swelled.

Striker Aiden O’Brien also has doubts about a persistent ankle injury while Lynden Gooch and Jordan Willis are injured.

Tomorrow everyone. It feels like a new era is about to begin in Sunderland. Lee Johnson’s appointment is expected this weekend.

Today there is also the little bit of a game: The Black Cats host the Bottom Club Wigan.
