Sunderland were left frustrated last night after a 1-1 draw against Rotherham United at the Stadium of Light.
The Black Cats went into the game in decent form after four wins out of their last five League One games.
Rotherham, on the other hand, travelled to the North-East in good spirits after battering Bolton Wanderers 6-1 at the New York Stadium last Saturday.
Sunderland took the lead after just 31 seconds when he slotted home past the Millers’ stopper Daniel Iverson.
The away side grew into the game as it went on and had more of the possession. They also had more shots than Jack Ross’ side and eventually equalised on 66 minutes through Jake Hastie.
Freddie Ladapo did well to find the Rangers loanee in the box who smashed the ball home for the Yorkshire side.
Last night’s result leaves Sunderland 4th the league table and four points behind Coventry City at the top of the table.
Rotherham are 14th and three points off the Play-Offs.
Sunderland will see last night as two points dropped on home soil. Here is how their fans reacted on Twitter to their draw with the Millers-
Current situation at #SAFC proves how fans hate negative football. From an outsider it seems they’ve had a decent start, sitting well in the league and are in good form. Odd bad result but in the main a good start. Totally different though when you have to watch it every week

'Collectively as a group we need more clean sheets'… I actually couldn't give two hoots whether we keep clean sheets or not, we should be blowing teams away with the squad we have. #safc

There’s so much wrong with our team. Connor McLaughlin is, positionally, a mess which unfortunately is why we lose O’Nien in midfield. Apart from McNulty, who has looked decent, we don’t have any other goal-scoring strikers. #SAFC

You can look at individual performances all you want from last night, but the fact of the matter is we will not be promoted out of this division with Jack Ross as the manager. #SAFC

Jack Ross has a win rate of 50.7%
You have to go back to 1979 to find a Sunderland manager with a higher win ratio.
Let’s get off his back #SAFC

#SAFC started well last night, penalty miss was pivot point in game, second half was really bad, substitutions were strange too. Credit to @OfficialRUFC too, they were by far better team 2nd half and fully deserved what they got.
