Ross: We’re frus­trated but in good po­si­tion

Sunday Sun - - Football -

JACK Ross ad­mits he is frus­trated at see­ing an­other two points slip through Sun­der­land’s grasp – but in­sists his side are still in a good po­si­tion.

The Black Cats had to set­tle for a draw against pro­mo­tion ri­vals Lu­ton Town at the Sta­dium of Light, with Chris Maguire’s first-half opener can­celled out by James Collins’ penalty mid­way through the sec­ond pe­riod.

Ross said: “If we don’t win games at home, we al­ways feel frus­trated and dis­ap­pointed. But we were play­ing against a good team to­day – they are where they are in the league for a rea­son.

“The game was prob­a­bly as we ex­pected it to be. When they did well, they looked threat­en­ing, and when we did well we looked threat­en­ing.

“We thought it would pan out that way and we’d pre­pared for that, so I was quite happy with that.

“I know when I say that it’s an­other point to­wards the to­tal, peo­ple will say that I’m de­flect­ing at­ten­tion away be­cause we haven’t won.

“But there is an el­e­ment of fact about it.

“We are in a good po­si­tion at the mo­ment – not a bril­liant po­si­tion, but a good po­si­tion.

“We still have a game in hand over those top two teams and if we win that game in hand then we will be in an even bet­ter po­si­tion.”
