'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Gordon happy with clean sheet

Sunderland goalkeeper Craig Gordon is happy to take some positives from the game against Derby at the weekend. He is also hoping Sunderland fans can play their part in the end of season run in.

Gordon told the Sunderland Echo 'It was always going to be close on Saturday because of the way it's gone for both sides.

'As a defence, we've kept our side of the bargain with the clean sheet and that at least is something to be happy with. But we felt we had the chances to win the game and we've come away disappointed not to have got the three points. It was a good opportunity to do that.

'The table is tighter again and a couple of the results made it even closer between a group of eight or nine of us in the bottom half of the table.

'We have a couple of tough games at home now, but with our home record and our crowd we have to have the belief that we can do well in these games.'

Gordon also gave his view of the goal that never was he told the Sunderlan Echo 'I was a long way from that, obviously, but a few of the lads have seen a replay and said it was onside. These are big decisions for clubs in our position, but perhaps we can't complain too much because there were other chances in the game that we haven't taken.'

Vital Sunderland Says
Gordon seems to be growing in confidence with our defences recent good form I just hope Everton don`t pull off another rout against us this weekend.

We are looking tighter at the back but we are still lacking the punch up front and Keano has only spend about 40 million on a side which has struggle to beat the wipping boys of the prem

Are you happy with Gordon overall this season or do you think he was over-rated?
