Sunderland boss Poyet thrilled by late comeback

Sunderland manager Gustavo Poyet was delighted after seeing his side score two goals in the dying minutes to salvage a point from their trip to Cardiff City, Sky Sports has reported.

Cardiff looked to be cruising to a comfortable victory as their dominance of the first hour of the encounter was rewarded by Jordon Mutch’s deflected strike, and Fraizer Campbell’s close range finish against his old club.


But as managerless Cardiff dropped deep to defend their advantage, Sunderland found a way back into the game as Steven Fletcher toe-poked the ball past goalkeeper David Marshall from a left-wing cross, before their late pressure finally told as Jack Colback’s shot deflected high into the net during the final minute of stoppage time.


The result meant Sunderland closed the gap on 17th place Crystal Palace to just two points, and for Cardiff it meant that they missed the chance to go four points clear of danger. After the game, Poyet hailed the spirit of his side in retrieving the deficit. He said: "It was an incredible day, but we started poorly. It looked after they scored their second that the game was dead.


"We fought hard though and put Cardiff on the back foot and in the end I thought we deserved the equaliser. Mentally in football it's vital you approach the game in the right way and I don't think our warm-up was a good one.


"It took us 30 minutes to get going and understand that you need to battle and we did that in the end."
