O'Neill: We're in 'bit of trouble'

Published Add your comment

New Sunderland manager Martin O'Neill has called on his players to start winning matches soon so they can drag themselves away from the relegation zone.

O'Neill took over the manager's position at the Stadium of Light on Saturday before watching the Black Cats squander a 1-0 lead to lose 2-1 at Wolves. The defeat stretched the Wearsiders' winless run to five matches and also saw them slip to 17th in the Barclays Premier League table, just one point from safety.

O'Neill took charge of his first training session at the club and chose the media conference that followed to remind his players that they must start winning games fast if they are to move away from the drop zone, saying: "Obviously we are in a little bit of trouble at the moment. We have been losing games and we could have had a few more points on the board."
