The Black Cats had only won once on the road so far this campaign, but certainly didn't look like a side struggling at the bottom in the first period.

"Lewis Grabban is a good player and he was difficult to handle all afternoon," Bentley told Get West London.

"He's clever, he jumps early with centre-halves with balls over the top and always on the shoulder and looking to get in behind. He had a presence and caused us some issues.
