Martin O’Neill’s side have only picked up four victories at the Stadium of Light this season.
Simon Mignolet: “With the position we’re in, if you don’t win your home games, you don’t make it easy for yourself.
“It’s the nature of the game that if you don’t win at home, then it’s going to be tight.
“The league is so tight at the moment, everyone knows that.
“There are no bad teams in the league so you have to look at yourself if you’re not picking up the points.”
