Sunderland’s reluctance to let Connor Wickham return to Hillsborough means that more responsibility is likely to fall on the men he has left behind.

The Owls have signed Benik Afobe for the rest of the season and will be in the loan market for an additional striker after it opens on Friday, but will still place challenges in front of men such as Atdhe Nuhiu and Caolan Lavery – and perhaps Chris Maguire.

The man who scored the winner against Barnsley has been used mostly on the right side of midfield but ideally likes to play as a central striker.
