Published Add your comment

Furious Sunderland boss Roy Keane blasted his players for taking their foot off the gas after seeing them slump to a 2-1 defeat to Manchester City in a dramatic finale.

The Black Cats started the day knowing their Barclays Premier League status could have been wrapped up by a fourth successive victory and results elsewhere going for them., but they ended it having seen the gap between them a third-bottom Bolton reduced to seven points.

He said: "We all need to do better, it´s as simple as that. It is like when you win, you try not to over-analyse it and when you lose a game, you try not to over-analyse it. You learn from it."
