Simon Mignolet is convinced Sunderland have enough in reserve to avoid relegation to the Championship.

"We have to look forward and it is important we do that rather than talk about the last couple of games," said the Belgium keeper.

"It is important to look upwards and ourselves, to make sure we are ready for the game. We can still end up where we want to be - there's a lot still to play for.

"There's three points up for grabs this weekend and we need to make sure we (get them) and then end the season on a high."

Mignolet added: "We have to make sure we're up for it.

"At home, with the crowd behind us, we can get the three points... We can't over-think things. The solution is within ourselves. We need some wins and we have enough ability in this squad to make it happen."
