Bolton Wanderers defender David Wheater wants another victory over Sunderland.

The Middlesbrough lad is desperate to make it two on the spin when his old foes Sunderland arrive at the Reebok.

Wheater, 24, spent seven years at Boro before joining Bolton in January and said: "It was great for the club to win their derby last week. I was buzzing after it and we got the local bragging rights.

"Now it's like my own local derby for me. We need the three points, these are the games that we should be winning if we want to get back up that league."
