Malbranque urges Sunderland not to dwell on Cup shocker

Steed Malbranque says Sunderland must not dwell on their FA Cup shocker against Notts County.

Sunday's Tyne-Wear clash with Newcastle will be less of a local derby and more a chance to say sorry after both bitter rivals crashed out to sides well below them in football's food chain.

Sunderland midfielder Malbranque said: "It's important to move on and get this result out of our system.

"It's a massive blow because we really wanted to have a good Cup run. We now have a huge game against Newcastle and it's one we're desperate to win.

"Hopefully, we can put things right in front of our supporters.

"However bad it is, we can't let this result ruin our season. If we can perform well in the league for the rest of the season, people will forget about the cups."
