Ball 'Players Are Fighting For Themselves - Not Me'
Interim Sunderland head coach Kevin Ball was left to reflect upon a fourth successive home defeat.
Kevin Ball: "The players are fighting for themselves - not me - and they need to fight for themselves as well.
"What I mean by that is they need to work hard for each other, and they know that.
"I will demand that from them and I would expect them to demand it from themselves.
"If people feel that''s because of me, that''s fantastic.
"But it''s not about me, it''s about the players in this club and it''s important they do work very, very hard to give themselves the best chance of getting the results."
