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

O'Neill: 'We created more than we did at Man City'

Sunderland boss Martin O'Neill was left frustrated that his side failed to convert their chances at Aston Villa yesterday, but pleased with the overall showing.

The former Villain's manager took his new side to Villa Park for the first time since resigning five days before the start of last season.

In an end-to-end game, the hosts were lucky to claim a point after Nicklas Bendtner saw a goal wrongly disallowed and another expertly cleared off the line by Stephen Ireland.

Speaking afterwords to The Official Site, O'Neill said of the stalemate:

'We created more chances than we did at Manchester City, where we scored three, but we just couldn't put the ball in the back of the net.

'There were numerous chances and it's a shame we couldn't convert them - and we had a goal chalked off for offside, which I think was the wrong decision.'

The gaffer continued:

'Today we played well, even though we have gone some games without scoring.'

The Black Cats are at home to Bolton Wanderers next Saturday.
