O'Neill urges stars to spread wings

Published Add your comment

Sunderland boss Martin O'Neill is hoping his wingers are finally ready to terrorise Barclays Premier League full-backs.

Adam Johnson and James McClean played key roles in Wednesday's 1-0 victory over champions Manchester City, with the £10million England international contributing the winning goal and McClean providing a reminder of the form which propelled him into the Republic of Ireland squad for Euro 2012.

O'Neill said: "They can be a threat and this is the whole point. If we can get the ball out to Adam sometimes a wee bit more quickly than we do, then he can cause problems."
