Sunderland winger Sebastian Larsson has admitted that he was relieved to score the winning goal against Blackburn Rovers yesterday afternoon.
The Swede's late intervention came a week after he missed a penalty against Wolverhampton Wanderers, a game which the Black Cats lost despite leading at one point.
"It's been a tough week, missing that penalty and turning a game around which we should have won," said the 26-year-old. "I felt I needed to do something and I am happy I got a goal, especially after last weekend."
Larsson joined Sunderland during the summer on a free transfer following his release from Birmingham City.
