Goals from Charlie Wyke and debutant Ross Stewart secured a 2-0 win at The Wham Stadium.

Indeed, Sunderland are unbeaten in their past 10 games in all competitions and have only lost once in their last 16.

The Black Cats are just five points off first place but have two games in hand over league-leaders Hull City and a game to come against the Tigers.

During the game, however, Accrington Stanley chairman Andy Holt was pictured with Louis-Dreyfus before the two sides locked horns.

The picture, which was posted by Holt on Twitter, prompted one Sunderland supporter to ask the Stanley owner for his thoughts on the 23-year-old billionaire.

Holt delivered an eight-word response which will no doubt please Black Cats fans.

Replying to the question on Twitter, Holt said: “Very decent man. Will do great for @SunderlandAFC.”
