Sunderland striker Altidore: We cannot rest on derby laurels

Jozy Altidore says Sunderland must build on their derby performance from Sunday.

Altidore says Sunderland cannot simply be "satisfied" with their current possession of local bragging rights over Newcastle United but must "kick on" and claim further points in their battle for top-flight survival.

He said: "It is a winnable game (at Hull) and we have to make sure we go there and show the same effort as we did on Sunday.

"It is huge. It is important now to kick on and keep going, not just be satisfied."
