Jol - Perfect Away Result

Jol - Perfect Away Result

The smile on the face of Martin Jol when the final whistle went told a story.

The Dutchman knew we`d got a win we should value and he had this to say to the media afterwards,

'I think it was a perfect away result but not a perfect performance. We had to grind out the result. It was a very scrappy game for us."

'Sunderland put so many players up front - they had four attacking players. We didn't do well at times. We have to try to control the midfield - we didn't do that in the first half. We couldn't keep it. Against an energetic Sunderland team, it was a bit easier than we thought, in hindsight."

'We showed good team spirit. Adel Taarabt had to play 90 minutes despite not having a pre-season, similar for Pajtim Kasami and Matthew Briggs.'

With Arsenal having been beaten, by Aston Villa today, our fixture at the Cottage against them next week looks to be an enticing one.
