Following on from the scoreless draw with Burnley last weekend, Darren Gibson knew that a point probably wasn’t enough with our league position but we’re just not being clinical enough in games.

Hosting Burnley at the Stadium of Light, whilst the point will be taken in the hope it proves to be the difference come the end of the current campaign, Gibson told the Official Site that given the performance and the opportunities we had across the game, there had to be a disappointment that we hadn’t taken all three points.

At this stage of the season ultimately positives from a performance count for very little.

‘I think we did enough to win the game so we were disappointed. We had three or four clear-cut chances that we didn`t put away, but we`ve picked up a point and we have to move on.’

One real positive from the game was keeping the clean sheet though, and Gibson knows we give ourselves a real chance of avoiding the drop once again if we can register more shut outs between now and the end of the campaign, but be sharper in the opposite box.

‘Keeping a clean sheet is a big positive we can take from the game. If we have to do it the ugly way it`s got to be done because there`s no point trying to play nice football and losing. We knew they were going to be organised and we knew what they would bring to the game, but we created chances, which is a positive, and if we keep creating them we`ll put them away.’

A fortnight of hard work now over the international break, and come April 1 it has to really be all three points against Watford and Vicarage Road as that game in hand Swansea City and then Hull City has to be a victory.
