Martin O'Neill is happy to be watching the fight for Barclays Premier League survival from afar as Sunderland's season ends with a whimper.

The Black Cats boss freely admits that he did not expect to be safe in mid-table at this point in the campaign when he took over from Steve Bruce in December.

O'Neill said: "You look at the results today - Wigan have gone and beaten Newcastle United, and teams are fighting for their lives. We could so easily have been in that position ourselves here, and we would have been on tenterhooks, really, at the end of the season. I am delighted we haven't been, but there's lots to ponder, lots to consider."
