Will Grigg missed a golden chance to score on his home debut for Sunderland.

The former Wigan striker took the ball around goalkeeper Mark Howard and somehow hit the side netting on his home debut.

Sunderland salvaged a late draw when Jack Baldwin equalised in the 75 minute.

Here's how some fans reacted to the miss on social media:

@AdamTrotman2 tweeted: "That Will Grigg miss might be one of the worst I've ever seen."

@Miles_Reah added: "Will Grigg is cancelled."

@whanie49 commented: "Will Grigg may well struggle to sleep tonight #Safc"
