Poyet has own goal concerns

8 December 2013 13:08

Gus Poyet admits that his Sunderland side have been the masters of their own downfall after a string of own goals during his time in charge.

Since the Uruguayan took over from Paolo Di Canio in October, the Stadium of Light club have put the ball through their own net on five occasions.

The latest of those mishaps came from John O'Shea in Saturday's 2-1 defeat to Tottenham and Poyet feels that they have to cut out the errors in their game.

"One, two, three is bad luck. Five - too many," he said. "Me, I believe in coincidence once, twice. Five? No, I don't.

"Somehow, always something happens."

Joking with the assembled media following the match, Poyet added: "Who is next? Do you know? Let me know so I don't play him."

The result leaves Sunderland bottom of the Premier League and facing up to a relegation battle, but the former Brighton and Hove Albion boss insists that he will not give up and will be making his players aware of his feelings when they return for training on Monday.

"On Monday morning I'm back and I keep going like a hammer. Bang, bang, bang," he continued.

"Either you let me in quick, or you're going to have a massive hole in your head very soon."
