Gyan ends goal drought in Sunderland win over Wigan

Posted On Saturday, 23rd April 2011

Asamoah Gyan scored for Sunderland

Ghana striker Asamoah Gyan ended his six-match goal drought for Sunderland with a 55th minute header in thier 4-2 league win over Wigan on Saturday.

Steve Bruce’s side had endured a woeful run which has seen them picked a only point from nine games, but that was ended in style as they pushed Wigan back into the relegation zone.

However, matters looked worsening for the home supporters when Mohammed Diamé arrowed beyond Sunderland’s Simon Mignolet for the opener on the 53rd minute.

Gyan saved Steve Bruce’s head as fans starting chanting the name of the manager asking him what the scoring would be.

Martínez’s team are notoriously poor at defending set pieces and Gyan made them paid for failing to properly clear a free kick.

Accordingly Malbranque found himself in sufficient space to switch feet before supplying Gyan with a splendid cross.

His header proved far too good for al-Habsi.

Sulley Muntari replaced Gyan on the 64th minute and the Black Cats continued their push for more goals.

Muntari set up Henderson to increase the tally to three before Stéphane Sessègnon scored from the spot to put the game beyond their opponents.

Franco Di Santo scored a 90th minute goal but that could not stand between Wigan and a return to the relegation zone.

  2. tonado2g7 says:

    well it was a good game the problem is with the kind of training they get … i wish them well…

  3. JERRO-GREECE says:

    And super Sulley Muntari was voted the fan’s man of the match. He was so good today.

  4. Ghost Of Sparta says:

    Finally! Good job done. Keep it up ASA. In the beginning, they didn’t pass the ball well to you but in the second half, they started passing well around and it payed off. Good work. Hopefully, Bruce can get reenforcement in the summer to help Gyan.

    Greetings,
    Al

  5. THE PAPA says:

    The problem with Sunderland is that the strikers lack supplies. The midfielders are not able to supply their strikers with the ball hence Gyan’s inability to score goals.
