Sunderland striker Connor Wickham hailed their away fans for the FA Cup draw at Bolton Wanderers.

Sunderland came from 2-0 down to draw 2-2.

“You could hear the fans all the way through the game,” Wickham told safc.com, “especially because the place wasn’t full.

“I think our fans dominated their fans - they didn’t stop the whole way through.

“It was a big stand they were in; with over 5,000 there it was amazing support. It really does help when you hear them cheering you on.”
