Poyet Wants More Of The Same.

Poyet Wants More Of The Same.
Sunderland boss Gus Poyet watched his side win at home for only the second time this season and hopes that the victory is just the start of many more.

Sunderland had not won for five games before Saturday, but Jermain Defoe and Connor Wickham came up with the goods that handed the Black Cats a precious three points.

Now Poyet wants to see more of the same from his side and they have games against Swansea QPR and West Brom coming up in the league.

Poyet told the BBC: 'It was much needed,' he told BBC Sport. 'We knew Burnley would be hard-working. First and foremost we needed to match that, and we did. Then we needed to impose ourselves with quality.

'The players on the pitch knew how important it was. We don't need to think we are okay - we need to go to the next level.

'I knew that Jermain would score sooner or later because his qualities are there. I want this to be a turning point. I hope we will go into the next game with the confidence we were looking for.'
