Sunderland boss Poyet demands more from Johnson

Sunderland boss Gus Poyet has hinted he expects better from Adam Johnson this season.

The England winger made his first pre-season appearance last night against Hartlepool United, having recovered from the minor knock that kept him out of Sunderland's first two friendlies.

Poyet said: "Johnno was desperate to play, and he linked up well with Fletch [Steven Fletcher].

"I'm sure he's going to have an even better season this year with us than he did last."
