Sunderland Defender Confident

Sunderland Defender Confident

Sunderland`s Danny Higginbotham is confident he and his team mates can turnaround the clubs recent run of results. Sunderland have been putting in good displays recently but not getting the results they deserve.


Higginbotham told the Sunderland Echo 'I've been in sides that have been relegated in the past and it was a lot different. The atmosphere, the performances - it is nothing like that here.

'I think we could tell at this stage of the season at the other clubs that we were in trouble. There was a negative vibe around the place and we were all feeling uncertain.

'What happens is that you get into a position where everyone starts to blame everyone else. But it isn't like that here - it couldn't be much further from that.

'The atmosphere here is so different to those situations, this is without a doubt, a club that's on the up, a club that's moving in the right direction.'

'Recent results have been disappointing but the confidence isn't ebbing away, I'm 100per cent certain on that. We're disappointed and frustrated but we're not lacking confidence and keeping your confidence is so important in these situations.

'We've matched all the teams we've played but it's about putting points on the board. There's such a fine line between success and failure whenever you go out onto the pitch but we still believe.'

'From the minute the West Ham game finished, we wanted to get back out onto the pitch. But you can't think about certain games being more important than others, you have to be positive going into all the games.'

Editors Comment

I am pleased to hear the team has a belief that the results will come. I think our Luck will change and I think It will change soon.
