Phil Smith and James Copley talk Accrington Stanley, Grant Leadbitter, Fleetwood Town, Dan Neil and Carl Winchester

Sunderland are currently top of League One after six games played.


That’s after Lee Johnson’s men defeated Accrington Stanley at the Stadium of Light on Saturday.


A thrilling first half saw Sunderland take the lead through a Dan Neil screamer before Stanley levelled the scores after a Michael Nottingham header.


Carl Winchester put Lee Johnson’s men back ahead in the second half and Sunderland were able to hold on for the win and remain top of the division.


Here, Sunderland Echo writers Phil Smith and James Copley talk all things SAFC.
