Sunderland: Cattermole delighted with Khazri return

West Ham United were denied a second consecutive league victory late on, as a strike from substitute Fabio Borini saw them draw 2-2 with the troubled Sunderland AFC.

Sunderland manager David Moyes has revealed that he has no issue with supporters of the club venting out their frustrations at him.

Moyes and Bain are said to have held a series of meetings over potential new arrivals in the summer at Sunderland.

"No-one is happy at the football club at the minute because of the position we're in".

However, Borini pounced on an error by Randolph to make it 2-2 and 10 minutes of stoppage time could not separate the teams.

Unfortunately for Moyes the crowd were able to use the fact that his side's first goals in eight games were scored by Wahbi Khazri and Borini, two players he has persistently sidelined, as a stick to beat him with.

Ayew opened the scoring for the Hammers before Wahbi Khazri's corner flew straight past Darren Randolph to break Sunderland's recent goal drought before the break.

Sunderland's slow start might have been punished further when Robert Snodgrass rolled a 21st-minute effort narrowly past the post, and the opportunity proved the spark for a sustained chorus of "We want Moyes out" from the home support.

"I'm disappointed with both goals, but not disappointed generally with the play".

West Ham United's James Collins, centre, scores his side's second goal of the game during the Premier League soccer match between Sunderland and West Ham United at the Stadium of Light, Sunderland, England. It's important we do that, you see in games, Fellaini was just coming and standing on me, that's what happens. I have to accept it. We've not been at our level and we've probably not been as united as a group as in previous seasons. We've got a game in hand - we just have to go to Middlesbrough (a week on Wednesday) and win now'.

Asked further if the criticism made him question himself, he replied: "No, I just keep in mind to myself that I think I have got the third or fourth-best win record in the Premier League. Managers not doing well, teams not doing well, they deserve to take their frustrations out on somebody and almost always, it's the manager".

West Ham are nine points clear of the bottom three and should be assured of beating the drop despite a troubled season on and off the pitch.
