Awful first half and only improved by the sending off, which at least added a little edge to the game. Although Rs deserved to win this was a poor performance, struggling to hold on in the last 10 minutes against the bottom team reduced to 10 men. Not impressive. Holloway's comments about the Sunderland formation confusing the players doesn't inspire much confidence. The bottom team in the league with an appalling recent record, down to 10 men should have been beaten convincingly, whatever formation they played and the team should have adapted.
But a very encouraging performance from Eze - some lovely touches, but would be good if he didn't look quite so languid.
