Ferguson satisfied with point

02 October 2010 08:00
Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson pronounced himself content with a draw after seeing his side survive a first-half battering at Sunderland. The Red Devils battled their way to a 0-0 stalemate at the Stadium of Light, with goalkeeper Edwin van der Sar making a vital save from Steed Malbranque and Bolo Zenden hitting a post as the Black Cats dominated before the break. Either side might have snatched victory at the death, but Ferguson was happy enough with a point on Wearside, United's fourth successive Barclays Premier League draw on the road. He said: "Sunderland had the most chances in the game and I have to say we were fantastic defensively. "That's the area in which we have been leaking goals and throwing games away this season, so I am pleased with that. "It was a very determined Sunderland team, their home record this season has been very, very good, so I am not pleased but I am satisfied."
