Allardyce wants repeat performance


Sunderland must take nothing for granted despite moving to within one victory of safety, manager Sam Allardyce has warned.

Sunderland produced a stunning comeback to defeat Chelsea 3-2 on Saturday and they will be guaranteed a place in the top flight next season if they defeat Everton or Watford in their final two games.

The Black Cats have only lost one of their last nine league games and they will be hoping to preserve their fine record when Everton visit the Stadium of Light on Wednesday evening.

Allardyce feels there is still work to do and wants a repeat of Saturday's performance against the Toffees.

"We need a repeat of the performance and support we had against Chelsea, particularly in the second half," Allardyce told his pre-match press conference.

"Don't come to the Stadium of Light with the expectation that it's job done because it isn't.

"On Saturday we had outstanding support and attitude and it got the fans off their seats. Wednesday is all about the result.

"We have still got to be very professional on Wednesday night.

"Being bottom of the table for several months is not enjoyable, but it is in our hands. We must take full advantage of our position and finish it on Wednesday."
