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

Manager Reaction to Fulham Victory

Sunderland manager Roy Keane was delighted to see his team beat Fulham 3-1 with goals coming from Collins, Chopra and Jones.

Keane told Safc.com "We scored goals at the right time but our overall performance wasn't great, our passing was not up to scratch."

"We're in a much better position than we were three weeks ago but we're not safe, we can still be caught."

"We've got some tough games coming up and we want to try to get as many points as possible. We have to keep going, we're looking up."

"It's nice to win football matches, that's what we're in the game for - to win. We've won three in a row now but we shouldn't be dancing in the streets."

"We've had some major disappointments this season and the players have remained positive, that's what has kept us going, it would have been easy for them to drop their heads."

"It's a good time to win three in a row but it's no coincidence that we've done it after getting a fully fit squad."

"Michael Chopra is a centre-forward but he has done a good job for us today, good players can play anywhere."

"I just had a gut feeling at half-time, you have to try these things. Carlos is coming back from injury and Fulham's shape was causing us one or two problems."

"I decided to change it and that's what I'm there to do. I've made a lot of changes this season which have not worked out - in the last few weeks they have."

"I've only been a manager for two minutes and I hope with every game that I'm improving. I've made loads of big mistakes this season ... but as long as you learn from them."

"There was not much between the teams today but we managed to score at the right time."


Vital Sunderland Says

Another important win and Keane is obviously pleased with his teams recent performances. Hopefully we can win a few more especially against the Mags.
