Sunderland fans were less than happy to see their side fall to another defeat last night, this time in the Trophy.

The Black Cats were runners-up in the competition last season but they have exited in the first round this year following an embarrassing 3-0 loss at lowly Sky Bet League Two club Scunthorpe United.

Luke O’Nien’s 65th-minute sending off prompted a Sunderland collapse with Phil Parkinson’s side conceding three goals as they lost the match 3-0.

The defeat means that Sunderland have now recorded just one victory, a 1-0 home success over struggling Southend United, in their last six matches. Following the 3-0 loss at Scunthorpe United, furious fans took to Twitter to give their views on the situation.
