SEBASTIAN Coates says both John O’Shea and central defensive partner Wes Brown proved invaluable in talking him through yesterday’s Tyne-Wear derby triumph – as they have done throughout his stint at the Stadium of Light.

“They didn’t just help me yesterday. It’s every day,” said the 24-year-old, on loan at Sunderland from Liverpool.

“For me, it’s a pleasure to play with two guys who have done so much in the Premier League.

“They’ve played for Manchester United, won championships there.

“So, for me, it’s really good.”
