Danny Graham doesn't believe Sunderland will be sucked back into the relegation battle.

Graham does not feel that there is reason to panic just yet.

"We haven't been picking up results, but the gap to the bottom three hasn't got smaller," he said.

"Teams below us haven't been picking up enough points. We're not looking over our shoulder, I don't think we need to. We've got enough within the team and the size of the squad, the home support we'll have over the next few games will be vital and I'm sure we can get the results we need and have a good end to the season."
