Don't Worry About A Thing

Don't Worry About A Thing

As the Sunderland fans chanted the Bob Marley classic 'Don't worry about a thing', the players came out and scored four goals inside an amazing twenety minute spell.

And Nedum Onuoha has said we do not need to worry about the lack of strikers we have for the remaining four league games.

'Being at home on Saturday, the emphasis is on us to win the game, whether we have any of the big name strikers or not,' he told the Sunderland Echo.

'It'll be the time for someone to go and step up because we've relied on the strikers too much to score goals this season.

'There was a lot of pressure going into the Wigan game and everyone knew it was a must-win. But we needed to put on a bit of a performance as well and in the second half we did that, having come back from a goal down.

'In the first half, Asamoah and Danny put their two centre-backs on the back foot. Then once Steed [Malbranque] and Stephane [Sessegnon] were in there, they were two completely different players and their defenders struggled to adjust.'

Steve Bruce may have to bring in Ryan Noble or Billy Knott, who has scored 16 times since he joined from Chelsea youths. The pressure is off a little for the rookie strikers but Bruce may go for Sessegnon up front again seen as it caused so many problems against Wigan.
