Pete Sixsmith had other plans after the Bury game so no one from Salut! Sunderland was at Easter Road for the 2-2 draw against Hibs.

Khazri and, believe it or not, the lesser-spotted Jeremain Lens scored good goals to put SAFC in a commanding position that was duly sacrificed as the home side scored two in three minutes and then went close to grabbing a winner. The clip shows excellent finishes for our goals and woeful defending for theirs.

Both of our scorers were surely in the shop window though imagine what assets they could be in the Championship if they stayed and were committed to the cause.

Oscar, Chamberlain not Wilde, was there for safc.com and his fairly detailed account appears here.

The absence of reports from Our Own Correspondent matters little with pre-season friendlies. But it’s good to have them all the same.

If you were there or are planning to attend other games, let us know by emailing
salutsunderland@gmail.com. The same applies if you’d like to help out with moderation and editing in the coming season.

A Hibs view of Sunday’s game would be interesting, too. The clip comes from TheLittelGreenMan‘s YouTube channel.

    Wasn’t there but was planning to listen via SAFSEE as I was on Friday. No such luck – as per it didn’t work.
