It is impossible not to be impressed by the commitment 2,000+ Sunderland fans have shown in their determination to be at the Priestfield stadium in Gillingham this evening.
Yes, we have a big support base in the south. It’s almost like a home game for hundreds of members of the London and SE branch of the SAFC Supporters’ Association. But I’ve seen social media messages from people in Sunderland, County Durham and Carlisle, talking about their journeys to Kent.
At work trying to get the equivalent hours in before heading off to Gillingham ???????? ? ?
