Dick Advocaat: SAFC win was 'a real team performance'

Sunderland are still a point away from being safe from relegation but Dick Advocaat praised 'a real team performance' which led them to a 2-1 win over Southampton.

Jordi Gomez put the team 1-0 up with a penalty, but Southampton's Sadio Mane levelled the scores after a minute.

Gomez secured the win with another penalty in the second half.

He told ITV Tyne Tees he is 'enjoying the fight' but added: 'Sometimes I would prefer to play instead of staying on the side. The team were knackered after the game. They showed the same fighting spirit as they did against Newcastle.'

Watch the full press conference.
