Martin O'Neill urges Sunderland to hold their position in the Premier League with four games to go.

Sunderland boss Martin O'Neill has urged his team hold on to their position in the Premier League with four games to go.

The Black Cats are in the top half of the table on goal difference alone after last week's goalless draw against Wolverhampton Wanderers. However, O'Neill is adamant that his side must focus on themselves instead of those around them.

"We were disappointed last week," he told the club's official website.

"We thought it would be a tough game and Wolves were never going to lie down, but we didn't do enough to deserve all the points.

"I think we have to concentrate on what we do ourselves. We need results on the board."

O'Neill takes Sunderland on the road to face former club Aston Villa this afternoon.
