Forget Stewart: Johnson must stick with £2.9k-p/w SAFC gem, he'd terrify Oldham - opinion

Sunderland are back in action on Wednesday evening with a clash against League Two club Oldham Athletic in the Papa John’s Trophy.

On the chalkboard

In terms of which players Sunderland manager Lee Johnson could pick to take on Oldham, one individual that started their previous league game against Cambridge United at the weekend that should be in the team once again on this occasion is Nathan Broadhead.

Given the worrying number of defensive injuries Sunderland have at the moment, it’s safe to say that Johnson will have some thinking to do about who he plays at the back in midweek.

However, with Broadhead managing to grab a goal against Cambridge, Johnson should have no doubts about including him in the team to face Oldham, leaving one less issue for him to worry about.

In the clash last weekend, as well as scoring Sunderland’s second goal of the game, Broadhead managed to make himself a real nuisance for Cambridge by having a total of three shots at goal, making two key passes and proving himself as a useful defensive figure by making one clearance and two tackles as well.

This performance earned the on-loan attacker an overall match rating of 7.1/10, making him their second-highest rated player on the day according to SofaScore.

Since joining the Wearside club on a season-long loan deal from Premier League club Everton, the 23-year-old, who is currently earning a weekly wage of £2.9k-per-week has made 11 appearances for the Black Cats across all competitions, trying his hand at different attacking positions in the process.

Even though Ross Stewart managed to earn a higher match rating (7.4/10) than Broadhead at the weekend, the fact that Oldham are in League Two could persuade Johnson to give Stewart a rest ahead of their next league game against Oxford United. That would allow Broadhead to prove himself once again in a game where he could terrify the opposition with his offensive abilities.

The Everton youngster’s clear talents across the pitch in an attacking and defensive sense could make him a terrifying prospect for Oldham’s players to come up against if he’s in the right mood.
