Poyet throwing everything at Sunderland job

Sunderland boss Gus Poyet is happy to throw everything at making a success of his job.

An FA Cup quarter-final clash with Hull at the KC Stadium stands between them and another prized date at Wembley.

There is also Saturday's home Premier League game against relegation rivals Crystal Palace to look forward to, meaning Poyet is as busy as ever.

He said: "I don't want to be a hero - but a full day off? No way.

"For example, on Monday the players are off but I'm going to be watching DVDs of Crystal Palace's last three or four games.

"It's a massive game for us so it's not a day off for me. It's difficult but it's the job and I like it.

"I've told the analyst here not to put Palace on my USB drive because I would have ended up watching them already.''
