Sunderland boss Martin O'Neill believes Stephane Sessegnon is getting back to his best after victory over Reading.

It was a Sessegnon goal that rubber-stamped the triumph after he skipped past a defender and the goalkeeper in trademark fashion to fire Sunderland's third.

"In terms of the scoreline Sessegnon's goal made it a fantastic win," O'Neill told

"That goal will be a boost to his confidence. He also showed signs of returning to that form he has previously showed."
