Black Cats beaten at home by Sheffield WednesdayYeovil hammer Coventry 6-2, Accrington win again• Any hope garnered by Sunderland from their Good Friday win over Derby vanished at the Stadium of Light on Easter Monday as they slipped to a 3-1 defeat to Sheffield Wednesday. With six games remaining, Chris Coleman’s side are five points from safety after squandering a chance to register back-to-back league wins for the first time since November 2016. Goals by Lucas João, Tom Lees and Atdhe Nuhiu sealed the win while Lee Cattermole rattled the post and Barry Bannan appeared to have fouled Lynden Gooch, the Sunderland winger, inside the penalty box.
