Manager David Moyes has attempted to remain upbeat following the weekend’s defeat to Everton.

Heading to Goodison Park to face his former club once more, Moyes saw Sunderland beaten two nil on the day and whilst he was obviously disappointed with the two goals we conceded on the day, he felt there were positives to take and one of those was the attitude of the players who continued to battle away until the end of the game.

Goalkeeper Jordan Pickford also came in for praise for his efforts between the sticks as he returned from injury.

Speaking to the Official Site in his post game press conference, Moyes explained.

‘We had done ever so well to make sure it was only 1-0. It was late in the game and we were always hoping that we could nick something but we weren`t good enough in the first half.’

With Jermain Defoe rattling the woodwork, Moyes knew it may have been a different game had that effort gone in, but ultimately Romelu Lukaku’s 80th minute second killed the game off for us.

‘I thought we got better in the second half and we sort of had one chance. We had grown into it and sort of played better but ultimately we didn`t get it and we gave away a poor second goal.’

The main positive for Moyes given the position in the Premier League table was that he certainly couldn’t fault the effort of the players in the match, but sadly we were just lacking that little bit of luck as on another day Defoe’s effort nestle’s in the back of the net and we get a second wind and make Everton edgy as the match comes to an end.

The hope is that luck turns our way soon and we make it count.

‘The players are giving it everything they`ve got and it`s certainly not for the lack of effort or running or working that we`ve lost.’
