Sunderland’s first win of the season last weekend can kickstart their campaign according to goalkeeper Keiren Westwood.

The Black Cats edged Tyne-Wear rivals Newcastle United 2-1 to climb off the bottom of the Premier League table and now the Irish custodian is looking for more of the same when they head to Hull City on Saturday.

"We've been on a high this week and everyone is delighted," Westwood told the club's official website. "Hopefully this can kickstart our season.

"With the team and the talent we have, hopefully we can push on.

"It's not going to be easy - every game in this league is tough but we'll go there in great spirits, look to get the ball down and play and take the game to Hull.

"They started really well, have had some decent result and got some points on the board.

"The league is so tight at the moment - Hull are in 10th and there's only three points between them and third-bottom.

"Hull are a good side. They've had some injuries but other players have come in and shown what they can do."
