Grayson’s ap­peal for ex­tra time

Daily Mirror - - SPORTS -

SUN­DER­LAND man­ager Si­mon Grayson has pleaded for time as he tries to save the club’s sea­son.

The rel­e­gated Black Cats are lan­guish­ing third bot­tom in the Cham­pi­onship and were blown away in a 5-2 de­feat at Ip­swich Town on Tues­day night.

That sixth de­feat in seven league games piled the pres­sure on Grayson as he pre­pares to take his side back to for­mer club Pre­ston on Satur­day. He claims that his job is a ‘work in progress’ and he needs time to get his squad to gel.

“Since I have been at the club I’ve tried to stress that we want to get pro­mo­tion but we have not spent the money that other clubs have,” said Grayson.

“Also, we’ve not got a God-given right to go up.

“We must re­alise that this is a work in progress.

“I don’t re­ally like us­ing that phrase too much, but it is right be­cause of the turn around of play­ers that have gone out the club.

“Ev­ery­body knows that the fi­nances are just not avail­able.”
