Sunderland defender Billy Jones says that the whole team are disappointed with their 0-0 draw with Aston Villa.
The Black Cats had a numerical advantage in the contest for much of the second-half, but they were unable to capitalise and could only claim a point at Villa Park.
It was a match which rather summed up their season so far, where their deficiencies in-front of goal have cost them a chance to climb the table, and Jones admitted after the game that nobody was pleased to have avoided defeat.
“The gaffer knows how disappointed we are as a collective," the former West Bromwich Albion defender said to the Sunderland Echo.
“I don’t think he felt the need to rant and rave afterwards. It was just a general discussion. We’re not happy drawing against 10 men, we feel like it’s two points dropped really.”
Jones played only his sixth game for Sunderland against Villa, after injury has blighted his time at the club so far.
The right-back will be hoping to make up for lost time now, though, and to do so he will need to help the team out in an attacking sense as well as a defensive one.
Although Gus Poyet's side have been very difficult to beat, losing just five of their first 19 games, their inability to win has meant they have struggled.
Sunderland have been victorious just three times this season and unless that record improves in 2015 then their chances of avoiding a relegation fight look unlikely.
