Why do you think that Sunderland can survive in the English Premier League for one more season at least?
Now, no need to scratch you head to dig out the reason. Sunderland custodian Craig Gordon answers the question:
It was always going to be close on Saturday (against fellow relegation candidates Derby County) because of the way it’s gone for both sides.
As a defence, we’ve kept our side of the bargain with the clean sheet and that at least is something to be happy with.
But we felt we had the chances to win the game and we’ve come away disappointed not to have got the three points. It was a good opportunity to do that.
The table is tighter again and a couple of the results made it even closer between a group of eight or nine of us in the bottom half of the table.
We have a couple of tough games at home now, but with our home record and our crowd we have to have the belief that we can do well in these games.
Sunderland indeed have good home form. The Black Cats have won 7 of their 13 matches at the Stadium of Light this season but manager Roy Keane would definitely like to alter his team’s abysmal away record in the Premiership.
