Gus Praise For Team And Fans

Gus Praise For Team And Fans
Sunderland boss Gus Poyet was pleased with his players and the club's fans after his side came back from a goal down to draw at Hull City.

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.'
