Sunderland defender O'Shea: We must be more positive

Sunderland defender John O'Shea has called on teammates not to wallow in their latest defeat.

Having plummeted into the bottom three, Sunderland face fellow strugglers Reading on Tuesday.

O'Shea said: "The league doesn't end after the Reading game, fortunately. We know it's a massive game, every game at home now is going to be a massive game.

"We have to show the belief and the confidence we have shown in the second-half performances and the way we have taken the games to the opposition.

"But we have to do that from the start and not just wait for a goal to be conceded to show that reaction. We need to show that beforehand rather than a reaction."
