Sunderland secured a comfortable 2-0 earn away at Swindon thanks to hits from Charlie Wyke and Philip Maguire.
The complement consisted of few chances for possibly side, apart from the two goals, yet Sunderland were ruthless in taking limited opportunities that came their own way.
Wyke managed to get 1-0 to the Black Cats within the 37th minute after finding room among the Swindon backline and switching a simple chance from close variety to give the visitors the lead.
Maguire doubled the advantage to get Phil Parkinson’s side in the 57th minute via a penalty that he earned himself.
He increased through on goal before switching inside Mathieu Baudry who fouled him in the box. Maguire dusted himself down and calmly delivered the penalty down the middle, defeating Matej Kovar who dived in order to his right in vain.
Baudry almost made amends for giving away the penalty, yet his header from Jack Payne’s free-kick drifted just wide from the post.
Josh Scowen could have made it 3-0 but their shot was saved by Kovar.
