Black Cats face three big games
Sunderland midfielder George Honeyman is preparing for three massive games against Brentford, Bolton and Middlesbrough.
The Black Cats have renewed hope after fighting back from three down at half-time at Bristol City last weekend to draw and Honeyman is hoping they can bring that never-say-die spirit into upcoming games.
Brentford are the visitors to the Stadium of Light on Saturday ahead of a midweek trip to relegation rivals Bolton Wanderers before the visit of Middlesbrough.
Honeyman said: “We have a massive couple of weeks coming up and we have to go into it on a high after Bristol, go into Saturday confident of getting the three points if we play like we did second half.
“That gave everyone a lift, the fans at the end, too. Hopefully this will prove a massive point come the end of the season.
“It is there, we just need to stop giving ourselves such big uphill task. We have the quality, we need to build on this and see where it takes us.”
