Michael Turner admits Sunderland will look to “put the record straight” when they face Everton for the third time in a month tomorrow.
The Black Cats have not had to wait long for revenge on the Toffees after their dismal FA Cup quarter-final replay defeat 10 days ago.
Sunderland head to Goodison Park for their second match in 48 hours on Monday, looking to end their bogey record against David Moyes’ men which now stands at a 17-game winless run.
Centre-half Turner hopes Sunderland can reproduce the same standard of performance from their first quarter-final meeting with Everton at Goodison when the two sides drew 1-1, rather than the 2-0 defeat in last week’s Stadium of Light replay, which ended the Black Cats’ hopes of silverware.
Turner told the Football Echo: “I think there is a sense of putting the record straight against Everton.
“We were gutted with the way we played in the replay, but we can take confidence from the way we played in the first game at Goodison and hopefully put a few wrongs right.
“It’s tough playing two games in three days, but you’ve got to get your head around it.
“I’m sure the whole squad will be used over the weekend.
“They’re two very tough games and I’m sure everyone will be needed.”
