SUNDERLAND have nine days before their next outing, with Gus Poyet looking to lift morale among his side prior to the trip to Crystal Palace on Monday week.
“It’s a long week this one,” said Poyet after today’s 2-0 Premier League defeat to Arsenal at the Stadium of Light.
“It’s part of the job (lifting them).
“It’s clear we’re getting paid to win games and we’ve won only one in the league.”
