Jones Confident of Survival

Jones Confident of Survival

Sunderland striker Kenwyne Jones confident Sunderland can lose it`s yo-yo tag and retain a place in the Premier League next season.

Jones who ended his goal drought against West Ham last Saturday told The Sunderland Echo "It was great to get back among the goals, at this stage it could not have been better timed and the whole place has been really buzzing."

"We are really glad that we could put a smile on people's faces after losing our last two home games. It was quite a long time since I'd scored and now I've got to make sure that the fans see more, sooner rather than later."

"But whatever happens the team comes first and as long as I play my part in helping us win then I'll be happy."

"Fulham will be a massive game but then again to a club like Sunderland every game is massive. It's good that we've been able to put some breathing space between ourselves and the bottom three but we've got to remain really focused because every game will be hugely important until we're mathematically safe."

"We will be treating every game as if our lives depend on it. But it's encouraging that the last two wins have put us on the road to safety and I believe we'll get there because I am confident in the team and its ability."

"Sunderland have been a yo-yo club and it would be some achievement to break that sequence and go on to become a Premier League power if we can."

"This season will do a lot for the club and the fans and if we do stay up next season we will build and become a stronger team."

"It was just a lack of experience that held us back and stopped us putting more points on the board, but now we're are showing that we are making good progress. We are turning things around and now we're aiming to put a string of results together that will keep us up."

Vital Sunderland Says

It great to hear Kenwyne talking about how we can turn into Premier League power if we can retain a place in the Premiership.

Hopefully he can go on a bit of a goal scoring run from now until the end of the season.
