Sunderland defender Michael Turner is adamant the squad is focused and united in their attempts to lift the club clear of danger in the Premier League.The Wearsiders continue to chase a first win in the league since October and are currently just three points off the relegation zone. [LNB]"No-one's dropped their heads, we're all working hard and sticking together," Turner told BBC Newcastle. [LNB]"We need to stay behind each other 100% and results will come." [LNB]Sunderland's predicament echoes that of Turner's former club Hull City last season - with Steve Bruce's side embroiled in a relegation scrap despite making a promising start. [LNB]And the 26-year-old centre-half, who helped Hull to safety, admitted a return to form will be difficult, but certainly not impossible. [LNB][LNB] [LNB][LNB] "It's very similar, we started very well last year but then got into a massive rut and couldn't get out of it," he said. [LNB]"It's difficult, players are low on confidence at times, and we just need to find a win to get that back. [LNB]"We can take some positives from the last five games, we've only lost one, and that's a big positive." [LNB]Turner joined Sunderland from Hull City in August 2009 for an undisclosed fee.
