​Anichebe tries to be positive over Sunderland's perilous League position

Victor Anichebe has admitted things can only get better for bottom of the table Sunderland as they attempt to avoid dropping into the Championship.

He said: "It's difficult, but that's life, that's football. I need to just keep going, the team need to just keep going and we need to just grind out results however we can for the fans who are here.

"They come in their thousands to support us every single week, even though times are really difficult. I haven't been in a position like this before with losses, and it's difficult.

"As much as it's difficult for them, it's difficult for us as well, it's difficult for everybody. But we need to just carry on, keep going because it's not good enough, let's be honest; it's definitely not good enough.

"We need to improve together as a team and we need to keep fighting. I hope that we'll improve, and we will improve. We will improve. Like I said, it can't get any worse.

"Hopefully everyone stays fit, everyone stays together, the fans and us and we just keep trying, keep working hard and play as well as we can."
