Sbragia ignoring speculation over his Sunderland future

As Ricky Sbragia's job as Sunderland manager becomes increasingly under threat, with Louis van Gaal and Steve McClaren both linked with the Black Cats, the current post holder is focussed on avoiding relegation. "The added pressure for me is getting points, I can't worry about that side,' Sbragia declared. "I know I have got to move up the table and move up the table soon, and not rely on others. We have got to do it.

"We had a great opportunity today, that's the annoying thing about it. We had a fantastic opportunity to get something and get some daylight between us and the ones below us, and we didn't quite achieve that."
