Lynden Gooch continued his stellar run of production for Sunderland in the club’s latest EFL League One win over Ipswich Town.
Gooch registered his fourth combined assist of the season as the Black Cats earned a 2-1 victory on Tuesday. The U.S. Men’s National Team midfielder set up Charlie Wyke in the eighth minute to get Sunderland going at the Stadium of Light. The 24-year-old cut inside before sending a lobbed pass into the box, allowing Wyke to bring down the pass before hammering home into the bottom corner. Gooch created the most chances in the match (2) and also successfully completed three dribbles and made a trio of recoveries.
Sunderland sits sixth in the league table ahead of a Saturday FA Cup clash with Mansfield on Wearside.
