Sunderland keeper Westwood happy after first appearance

Sunderland goalkeeper Keiren Westwood was happy to see action in their 2-1 friendly win over Kilmarnock.

Former Coventry City No1 Westwood missed the final stages of last season with a shoulder problem and was cleared to return to full training during the Black Cats' tour of Germany.

Reflecting on his Sunderland bow, Westwood told "I don't think it went too badly.

"The team played well though I was a little bit rusty in some areas. That's going to happen though as I've spent a lot of time out.

"The more pitch time I get the better I will be."

The keeper added: "At the moment it's about working out the kinks. There were some things I wasn't too happy with, but I'll work on them like I always do and then move on.

"I enjoyed the experience more than anything to be honest. It's great to play with such good players and that is a massive bonus for me."
