There’s A Confidence In The Sunderland Camp

Goalkeeper Lee Camp has said that there remains a quiet confidence inside of the dressing room that Sunderland can still get themselves out of the mess created this season.

With a narrow defeat to Queens Park Rangers last weekend, Camp said that given the circumstances of the game and the way the side played, we should certainly continue to take confidence from that moving forward into the remaining matches in the 2017/18 campaign.

Fans would of course take greater confidence had Sunderland registered an effort on target and tested their goalkeeper, but undoubtedly the red card for Jason Steele changed the game in their favour.

Speaking to the Official Site this week to reflect on the match, Camp was pleased with his performance in general after replacing Joel Asoro so somebody could go between the sticks, but he was disappointed we didn’t manage to take at least a point from the game.

‘We are trying to win games of football to get some positivity back. If you think about the negatives it won`t help and we won`t win games with our chins on our chest, so we have to stick our chests out, be brave and go again.’

I guess he meant lift their heads as well.

‘Up until the sending off we were very much in the game, but when you go to ten men, you have to dig in and get a point. It was disappointing to concede and not get a point out of it, but we won`t dwell on it because we have to pick ourselves up and go again next week.’

Asked about what the players had to do moving forward, he explained simply that football is a simple game.

‘Essentially, it comes down to us being organised, being disciplined, doing the right things and sacrificing a few things along the way and the result will come. Hopefully we’ve stemmed the flow of goals and that gives the boys up front less pressure so, when they do score, the goals count.’
