Craig Gardner has assured Sunderland fans they won't allow their season to tail off.

Gardner says there's no notion of the team thinking they're already on their summer break with much still at stake.

"We want to finish as high as we can and we have to keep going to the end," he told "Finishing in the top 10 would be brilliant.

"Just because we're safe that doesn't mean that we can hang our boots up for the rest of the season - not that we would do that anyway."
