O'Neill hails best result yet

Published Add your comment

Sunderland boss Martin O'Neill labelled Tuesday night's 4-1 victory over relegation-threatened Wigan more impressive than their weekend win against Barclays Premier League leaders Manchester City.

With little over 48 hours between games and a squad seriously depleted by injuries, the DW Stadium performance exceeded O'Neill's wildest expectations.

O'Neill said: "I thought it was the best result since I arrived. Manchester City was a great win for us, to score in the last minute, it seemed as if we'd played three games, particularly in the last 20 minutes of the game."
