Former Sunderland manager Peter Reid congratulates Will Grigg after the important winner against Walsall

Former Sunderland manager Peter Reid congratulated Will Grigg after his crucial winner against Walsall on Saturday.

The Black Cats kept the automatic promotion to the championship in their own hands, while goals from Lee Cattermole and Grigg eliminated Josh Gordon's opener in a crucial 2-1 win.

Grigg & # 39; s clinical left-hand finish in the second half moved Jack Ross's side in two points from the second-placed Barnsley and if they win their game, they go to the automatic promotion spots.

His contribution to the victory was huge and it did not go unnoticed by the legend of Black Cats, Reid, who said on Twitter: "@WillGrigg, well done lad. @SunderlandAFC."

Reid was Sunderland's famous director between 1995 and 2002 and twice led Sunderland to the Division One title, as well as back-to-back seventh places in the Premier League.

He is generally regarded as Sunderland's most successful manager of the Premier League era and he remains very popular on Wearside.
