Following the game, the Sunderland Echo reported that Plymouth boss Derek Adams claimed that Plymouth ‘were the better team’, that he thought defeat wasn’t the right scoreline and Sunderland ‘rode their luck’.
He said: “Last week Southend had more opportunities than Sunderland did and Sunderland won. “Today, we have had more opportunities than Sunderland, and Sunderland have won.
Adams goes on to add that he thinks Sunderland won’t get it all their own way this season and that they’re favourites because of the money they have.
