Di Canio Works Out The Maths

21 April 2013 12:38
Saturday's win was Sunderland's first win over Everton in 20 attempts.

Paolo Di Canio: "I am very happy because it's another win and really important for the squad, for the environment.

"Two wins in a row - I don't know how long since it happened - to be honest, I didn't check. I don't care.

"It's important that we give consistent performances. That gives you results, gives you points in the table, so that's the most important thing at the moment.

"We are not safe yet. I don't think it's enough. Every weekend, our prediction changes. If Wigan can win against Swansea, they are 34, three points from the main group close to them on 37 with four games to go.

"I don't know, it depends. If you get three points against Aston Villa, it can probably be enough, 40, 41; if you lose against Aston Villa or Stoke and then you beat Southampton, maybe it's not enough.

"I don't know. If we win the direct conflict (with Villa), 40, 41 can be enough, otherwise it's difficult."
