Snodgrass feels it was a point well earned.
"Any point away from home is always good," said Snodgrass. "The togetherness in the squad showed and I think before, we maybe would have lost this game.
"Sunderland are down at the bottom fighting for their lives. I know it's the first half of the season but still. And the way we played as well (was pleasing), blocking the goal and made some great chances.
"That inconsistency in results has definitely made things difficult. But the way we did it at West Brom, against Swansea and now here, that's fine. If you can pick up a point away from home and then get your home form sorted out, then you'll be in the top half of the table.
"That's where we're trying to get. The manager has been working hard, we've been working hard. We've got an honest bunch and when things aren't going right, we'll do the extra hours to try to put it right."
