Sunderland Boss warns players

Sunderland head coach Paolo Di CanioSunderland boss Paolo Di Canio insists the side cannot consider themselves clear of relegation yet despite their win over Everton.

The victory has moved the Black Cats six points clear of the drop zone and even though they look to be safe, the Italian is taking nothing for granted.

Stephane Sessegnon’s goal just before half time gave Sunderland their second consecutive win but they had to battle hard throughout the match against a team pushing for Europe.

Despite the gap to the bottom three, the Italian is taking nothing for granted, and he said: “I don’t think it is enough. Every weekend we can change the prediction for who will go down.

“Once again it was one step forward but the main job is not done.

“Once again I am very happy for my players, they gave everything on the field and I can’t ask for anymore,” added Di Canio.

“I am very happy. It is another win and an important one for the squad and the environment. It is important we put in consistent performances that give you the correct results and the points.”
