Sunderland captain Lee Cattermole admits he can sense a winning momentum inside the club.

Confidence is oozing out of the Mackems and skipper Cattermole is banking on it to fire them all the way to Wembley.

He said: "We have a lot of momentum and I do not think there has really been a dip in any of the games under the new manager.

"We have had a lot of matches and some difficult questions have been asked of us but if you look at the effort the lads are putting in, it is unbelievable.

"Stephane Sessegnon and James McClean have been great for us. They have that pace and they can both beat a man so they are great at taking the pressure off the rest of the team."
