Richardson happier in Sunderland left-back role

Kieran Richardson is feeling more comfortable at left-back for Sunderland.

Richardson feels he's getting used to his new role on the left side of defence after being converted from a midfielder.

"I feel comfortable there right now and I'm adapting," he explained told after defeat to West Bromwich Albion.

"It's probable that some teams might try and target me because I'm not a left back by birth but with every game I think I'm getting better and the more games I get under my belt the better I'll hopefully get.

"Tonight and tomorrow we'll obviously be really down but it's an important game on Tuesday and then a big one on Sunday."
