'We had players drop out in the last two days, we are down to the barebones. We literally had enough players just to fill the bench. The players keep digging deep and I can`t ask anymore from them. I might have to register as a player myself!'
Goalscorer David Connolly:
'It`s my job to score goals for Sunderland and I enjoyed doing it again. The most pleasing thing about the goal was that it helped us to get the win.
'We are on a great run, six games unbeaten and that`s very pleasing. We have to keep it going and make sure that we extend it even further when we go to Burnley next week.
'There is a momentum building up now. We have picked up a lot of points over the six-game run and started to move up the table. Who knows how far we it can go? This is a league in which you can go a long way if you start to string a few wins together and that`s what we have started to do. We`re not taking anything for granted.
'We`re three points off the play-offs and that`s an obvious target but there are probably another 10 teams who are thinking the same. There`s still a long way to go and we just need to keep our form, keep winning and hope for the best.'
Mike 'chill pussycat' Newell:
'The miss in the first half came back to haunt us. We were on top but people miss chances. I missed enough chances as a player. It is not a consolation saying we did well, and there was a handball for their first goal as well.'
