Gus Praise For Team And Fans
The Black Cats had fallen a goal behind thanks to a strike from Dame N'Doye, but Poyet's men were not going to let the game go and found an equaliser from Jack Rodwell even though it was a bit controversial.
Poyet counts the game as a point gained and now switches his attention to Aston Villa at the weekend, but he did tell reporters: 'I'm very pleased with the players, they knew how important the game was and they played accordingly, it's a point on the board.
'We started the second half well and the substitutions changed the game; being in the stands gave me the opportunity to see things from a different point of view and we made different decisions because of that.
'Ricky [Alvarez], Connor [Wickham] and Patrick [van Aanholt] all did extremely well when they came on; it was a team effort.'
Poyet also found the time to heap some praise onto the fans who had made the trip to Yorkshire, he added: 'I thought they were magnificent.
'When we were losing one-nil they were the only fans in the ground making any noise.'
