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

Manger Reaction to West Ham Win

Sunderland manager Roy Keane was delighted with his teams efforts during the 2-1 win against West Ham.

Keane saw his team come back from an early Freddie Ljungberg goal to take another precious three points thanks to goals from Jones and Reid.

Keane told safc.com "It was nice to see the five minutes go up and I had a feeling something would happen."

"We had a previous opportunity with Daryl and you are just hoping you get another. We've scored a few late goals so we've always got a hope."

"Murphy had run his socks off and I've no problem with strikers missing chances, you've got to be in there to miss them."

"If you want that late chance to fall to anyone, it's Reidy. It was a big, big goal for this football club."

"The table looks better but I've said it only counts at the end of the season. With the goal difference we have, you can take a point off."

"We earned it today. The first 25 minutes was appalling - I thought we were shocking. I could have played for West Ham today. We stood off them, we let them pass it and when you do that, you are in trouble."

"Even the goal we gave away, if I'd seen it on a Sunday morning I would have been disappointed. The players were told, at half-time they were reminded of the position we are in."

"It's a massive season for us and they produced in the second half, I have to say. They have reacted very well to my strong words. In terms of the Premier League this is a pretty big win."

"The atmosphere was brilliant, we are very, very lucky at this football club. More than 45,000, that's fantastic."

"Andy just about made 95 minutes today - don't think he was flying at the end! Andy has worked extremely hard on his fitness. I don't think he was at his best today but he gives us something, that's why he is here."

"We can't relax. We can't take anything for granted. We've never had back-to-back victories for a long while - imagine if we won next week! Three in a row would be a miracle!"

"We're in no position to relax. I'm just relieved for the players. We're going to a training camp tonight, the lads will be relieved that we won because I would have been growling all the way there."

Vital Sunderland Says

Its great to win another home and game we deserved it. If we can get another three points this season I think we will be OK.
