Sunderland picked up its second straight league win on Tuesday with Lynden Gooch making an impact once again for the League One side.
Gooch registered one assist in the Black Cats 1-0 win over Crewe Alexandria at the Stadium of Light. It was the American’s second-consecutive start for Phil Parkinson’s side, which he also registered an assist. Gooch received the ball on the right wing in the 45th minute and whipped a dangerous cross into the box. Charlie Wyke headed home the cross for the lone goal in the win. The 25-year-old also won four duels and completed 88% of his passes as Sunderland moved to fifth place in the table with 14 points. Up next for Gooch and Co. is a highly anticipated home clash with Portsmouth.
Elsewhere, Sergino Dest started for Barcelona in a lopsided Champions League win while Ethan Horvath impressed in his first start since 2019. Geoff Cameron went the distance for QPR, but couldn’t help the London club avoid a shutout loss. Terrence Boyd scored for Hallescher FC in a 3. Liga victory for the German club.
