Sunderland manager Roy Keane was pleased by his side result but unhappy at how his side conceded so early in the match. Sunderland were a goal down within five minutes as Tuncay took advantage of a defensive error. Sunderland came back to win the game with goals coming from Higginbotham, Chopra and Murphy.
Keane told safc.com "It's great - better than last weekend, let me tell you."
"The game summed up our season. We started badly, gave a bad goal away, recovered, scored a couple of good goals and then the late goal from Daryl."
"It was a rollercoaster game and it's been a rollercoaster season."
"The players deserve real credit, they have been brilliant. In terms of desire and attitude, I think we'll be top of the league."
"I've said that I felt this season was one of the biggest in the club's history - because of its yo-yo history, we needed the stability and we need to build."
"Hopefully this will give us a chance to move on, strengthen in the summer and take it from there."
"I'm glad we did it at home today. Last year when we got promoted we were not playing. This is nice because we were all together at the Stadium of Light. The fans have shared it, it's been a very good day."
"We've scored in injury time again today and I don't know how many points those late goals have been worth this season."
"We've had an unbelievable amount of injuries and hopefully we'll have a stronger squad to deal with it next season."
"The next challenge is to improve the squad and finish higher in the Premier League. We want to be bigger, better and stronger next season."
"We've got two games to go and we're still confident we can get a few more points on the board and finish as high as possible."
"It's been a proper rollercoaster. I've been on some at Alton Towers and it doesn't touch this job."
"I was disappointed with the reaction of certain people after the Newcastle game and hopefully we have answered them today."
"It was a cracking game and credit to Middlesbrough - hopefully they will get enough points to stay up, I'm sure they will."
"The atmosphere was cracking today and credit to both teams and both sets of supporters for that."
"We had great spirit here, a good dressing room. If we hadn't, we would have been knackered. That kept us going, a good dressing room."
"We'll still go to Bolton looking to get a result, we've got to be fair to the other teams in the league, we're certainly not downing tools."
"Promotion last year was great, staying here this year is progress and that's what we wanted. This year was a massive learning curve for everyone."
Vital Sunderland Says
A great result against the smoggies to secure our premier future for next season.
