Sunderland boss Paolo Di Canio claims that his team played like "warriors" during their 3-0 win at local rivals Newcastle United in the Premier League.

Sunderland manager Paolo Di Canio has claimed that his side played like "warriors" in their 3-0 win at local rivals Newcastle United in the Premier League.

Stephane Sessegnon, Adam Johnson and David Vaughan all scored at St James' Park to give Di Canio his first victory in charge of the Black Cats.

"They were warriors," the Italian told Sky Sports News. "You can't be more proud than this. They did everything, they gave everything, they left all of their energy on the field.

"It was a fair result at 3-0, so I am very happy for them because they really suffered during the game. It was hard because we knew that we had a team in front of us with fantastic ability and quality."

Sunday's derby win has seen Sunderland move three points clear of the relegation zone with five games left to play this season.
