Jack Rodwell expecting "intense" match

Sunderland midfielder Jack Rodwell reveals that his side are not far away from clicking into gear this season ahead of his side's clash against Burnley in the Premier League.

Sunderland midfielder Jack Rodwell has admitted that he is expecting a tough match in his side's Premier League clash against Burnley.

Both sides are looking to register their first win in the top flight in the campaign, but Rodwell feels that the Black Cats are not far away from finding their rhythm.

He told the club's official website: "We have been really solid defensively and now we need to make sure we get some more goals, however, we have only lost once and it was a game we should have taken something from.

"If we can tighten things up at both ends I think we will be alright, but Saturday's match will be an intense and physical contest so we need to be on it in every sense."

Gus Poyet's side travel to face the Clarets in their match at Turf Moor later today.
