Gomez plays down significance of Sunderland's last two wins

Jordi Gomez says the hard work isn't done for Sunderland after wins against Burnley and Fulham.

Sunderland star Jordi Gomez has told the Chronicle that the hard work for the team isn’t over.

Gus Poyet’s men have put together two good wins against Burnley in the Premier League last weekend before victory in the FA Cup replay against Fulham.

Gomez has suggested that while the results are encouraging, the team hasn’t achieved anything yet, hinting at a need for consistency.

“We are very happy with that, but we need to keep working and trying to win,” he said.

“We have not done anything yet, so we have to do the same thing we have been doing in the last two games.”

Sunderland have a difficult game against Swansea City this weekend where their form and resilience will be tested to the full in Wales.

Poyet has to stress all of the good things the side has done in their last two games, box them up and encourage the team to replicate them on a consistent basis.

The clean sheet against Burnley shows the defence is in good form and five goals in the club’s last two games shows the attack is starting to fire.

The aim for Sunderland by the end of the season will be to consolidate comfortably in the Premier League and to try and progress as far as possible in the FA Cup.

A winning run creates momentum and improves confidence, which will help the club achieve both of those goals.
