Have your say

MICHAEL Turner says Sunderland’s miserly defence passed the acid test at Stoke City.

Sunderland recorded a third consecutive Premier League clean sheet in yesterday;s 1-0 victory at the Britannia Stadium.

Turner said: “You know what you get when you go to Stoke – it’s relentless. Credit to the lads, everyone defended for their lives in that penalty area. It was a great result.”
