Lynden Gooch's 79th minute screamer separated the sides as Dons slipped to 20th in League One. Here's how the players rated in the game.
1. Lee Nicholls - 6.5
Could have been beaten on a few occasions but for some dodgy Sunderland finishing. Didn't touch the ball a lot otherwise.
2. Dean Lewington - 7
Not the way he wanted to mark his 750th game for the club. A few misplaced passes but came close to scoring a stunner.
3. Joe Walsh - 7
Only really let the dangerous Wyke out of his sight once before the striker was withdrawn.
4. George Williams - 6.5
In a similar story to his game on Tuesday night, looked comfortable but his distribution let him down.
