Sunderland winger aiming to add goals to his assist tally

Winger Callum McManaman has started his Sunderland career with two assists in three games - and now he's looking to add goals.

Satisfied with the impact he has made since arriving in the North East, McManaman is aiming to quickly get off the mark in the goalscoring charts too and help Sunderland climb the Championship table.

Since signing a two-year deal on deadline day, the former West Bromwich Albion wideman has provided assists for Jack Rodwell against Sheffield United and for James Vaughan's debut Sunderland goal in the weekend draw away to Hull City.

His latest assist came in the 17th minute at Hull, McManaman providing the cross from which Vaughan powered home a header to give the Black Cats the lead.

Ex-Sunderland midfielder David Meyler netted a late deflected leveller for the hosts to leave Sunderland with just the single league win so far this campaign.

Ahead of the third round Carabao Cup clash against Everton at Goodison Park on Wednesday night, McManaman said: "It has been decent but I want to score more goals.

"I’m still not fully fit but I feel like I am getting there and when I can get one goal I can get a few.

"All the lads are gutted we didn’t get the three points, we all felt we fully deserved the win.

"I am made up for Vaughany because I think he needed that for confidence.

"He will get a few more now. He knew exactly where I was putting it when I got to the byline, I didn’t even need to tell him.

"He knows what we are going to do, he has seen me play over the years," the former Everton trainee told the club website.
