SAFC loan round-up
The Hartlepool United loanee looked odds-on to net as he rounded the Tranmere Rovers 'keeper but was brought down to earn Pools a penalty.
Pools boss Neale Cooper told the Sunderland Echo:
"He`s desperate to score all of the time. It`s not going for him at the moment and I feel for him.'
"It really hurts him and he beats himself up about it afterwards and gets down.'
