Poyet determined for Sunderland to pass their way to safety

Sunderland boss Gus Poyet is determined to pass their way to safety.

Poyet will stick with the system that has helped him so far in his management career.

He said: "That is important for me as a manager. I believe in things. I see things working in other divisions, and I know they work. I know that.

"You can challenge me and argue different, but I know it works. What I didn't know for sure was whether it would also work in the Premier League, but now I can say that it works there too.

"Whether we can finish the job now, I don't know. I can't promise that. But I can promise you that the way we are trying to work, and convince players to play football, that is a method that brings results. I just hope I can continue to prove it between now and the end of the season."
