Sunderland manager Roy Keane was understandably disappointed by his teams performance against Man City. Elano and Vassell grabbed the goals that secured three points for City when maybe a draw would have been a fair result.
Keane told safc.com "It was a poor afternoon. The game wasn't great and we gave some bad goals away. At 1-1, I would have taken the point."
"At the time I wasn't sure if it was a penalty, but having seen it again it clearly wasn't. There was no contact."
"All the players should be disappointed, we have got to do better. It was possibly coming after three wins."
"If I've said it once, I've said it a million times - we've got hard work ahead. Maybe people took their eye off the ball because they have plugged into people saying we're safe and let's look at next season."
"We might have slackened of four or five per cent and you can't do it. We started badly, we keep making it hard for ourselves. I could have almost predicted what was going to happen."
"People need to start listening to me, not looking ahead to next season. We're in for some tough games."
"City have some good players but we gave them a helping hand. I substituted Kieran and he was the unlucky one because I could have taken seven or eight off."
"We all need to do better, it's as simple as that. We'll learn from it. I didn't enjoy watching it and I'm sure the supporters didn't. We've got hard work ahead."
Vital Sunderland Says
Keane is right we need to grind out some more points before thinking about next season. With two local derbies coming up the team needs to be more focused.
