Striker says Sunderland mist be predictable against West Ham

The Sunderland manager's arrival on the touchline in the 20th minute of Saturday's home 2-2 draw against West Ham was greeted with a chorus of boos and chants of "we want Moyesy" out from the South Stand.

David Moyes has "no issue" with Sunderland fans venting their frustrations at him with the Black Cats' slide towards relegation showing no sign of easing.

The Black Cats battled their way to a 2-2 draw with West Ham at the Stadium of Light on Saturday, in the process collecting two fewer points than they craved, but closing the gap to safety to nine. As a result, survival continues to look like a forlorn hope.

Twice the the east London outfit lead against the division's bottom side but on both occasions they were pulled back, as goals from Andrew Ayew and James Collins were cancelled out by Wahbi Khazri - straight from a corner - and Borini.

Cattermole himself had a hard day, booked with less than a minute on the clock after he fouled Andre Ayew, as the Ghana worldwide prepared to shoot from the edge of the area.

The club's goal drought ended after 701 tortuous minutes when Wahbi Khazri's corner caught the win and flew in.

But those facts hide more brutal truths, with relegation moving ever closer and the uneasy truce between Moyes and club's long-suffering fans coming to an end.

The first blunder was caused by a whipped in Wahbi Khazri corner, with the ball flying right over Randolph's head and into the top-corner to make it 1-1 in the first-half. We probably haven't defended either goal of well as we should have done.

5' - GOAL! SUNDERLAND 0-1 WEST HAM (AYEW) Well that didn't take too long did it!

Sadly, their dominance was not to last. Cabaye pulled one back within just two minutes and it fell to Benteke to head in the leveler, with Palace looking the more likely to seal a win late on, though Leicester held firm. (BYRAM) And West Ham will play the last five minutes or so with ten men as Byram is shown his second yellow for a late challenge on Januzaj. Ayew should have done better, firing over from close range after Carroll and Snodgrass had combined to teed him up, while Victor Anichebe's effort was deflected behind and Khazri tested Randolph with a low drive as the sides exchanged opportunities shortly before the break.
