Sunderland boss Gus Poyet is desperate to resume their survival fight.
Poyet is wary about those teams above Sunderland boasting points on the board.
â€śWith the more games you get in hand, it can get worse,â€ť he told the Sunderland Echo.
â€śThere are teams that have been winning and gone away from us who were very close a week or two ago.
â€śYou canâ€™t get there (because of not playing league games) and donâ€™t know for real where you are.â€ť
