Sbragia sets Sunderland points target for PL safety

Sunderland boss Ricky Sbragia feels a point a game from now until the end of the season will ensure Premiership safety. The Black Cats are currently five points clear of the bottom three.

"If we can average one point a game I'd be happy," said Sbragia.

"Liverpool is a big game but the two after are bigger - the home games against Tottenham and Wigan.

"If we could get four points from our next two games I'd be delighted. We want to keep our unbeaten run going and hopefully push into the top half of the table.

"40 points will probably be enough to see us safe, anything after that's a bonus. If we can get 12 points from now until the end of the season I'll be happy.

"Liverpool will pose a different kind of threat to Arsenal. They'll mix it up more, they can be more direct."
