Jozy Altidore says that Sunderland need to show the same effort against Hull City on Saturday as they did in Sunday's victory over Newcastle United.
Sunderland striker Jozy Altidore has urged his teammates to build on last week's victory in the Tyne-Wear derby when they travel to Hull City on Saturday.
The 2-1 win over Newcastle United was the Black Cats' first of the season, lifting them off the bottom of the Premier League table.
Altidore said that it is vital the team shows the same commitment at the KC Stadium as they scrap to overcome a poor start to the season.
"It is a winnable game [at Hull] and we have to make sure we go there and show the same effort as we did on Sunday," Sky Sports News quotes the American as saying.
"It is huge. It is important now to kick on and keep going, not just be satisfied."
The 23-year-old joined the North-East club from AZ Alkmaar in the summer.
