It appears the no-nonsense Blues man channels his inner Forrest Gump as he charged into the woodwork in the second half last Saturday.

A second clip shows the true impact of the defender, who was later injured in a collision with his keeper John McLaughlin, as he gives Raggett a helping hand moments before impact.

Sunderland boss Phil Parkinson claimed Ellis Harrison was to blame for Lynch’s injury after the game, but yesterday said the problem was not as bad as feared.
