Lee Cattermole urges Sunderland to build on draw with West Ham United

Sunderland midfielder Lee Cattermole believes that his side's last-gasp draw with West Ham United could kickstart another unlikely survival bid.

Sunderland midfielder Lee Cattermole has suggested that his side's 2-2 draw with West Ham United on Saturday could be the springboard they need to launch an unlikely survival bid.

The Blacks Cats have been specialists of the great escape in recent seasons, but their current position is their most perilous yet as they sit bottom of the table and nine points from safety with only six games of the season remaining.

Sunderland are winless in their last eight matches too, although they did end a seven-match goal drought against the Hammers before Fabio Borini's 91st-minute equaliser rescued a point.

"Honestly, that's as positive as I've felt after a game for a long time," Cattermole told reporters.

"If we have to start with a draw, we'll start with a draw, but I think you'll definitely see us look to build on that. We will behind the scenes."

Sunderland's next match sees them face fellow strugglers Middlesbrough on April 26.
