Allardyce: 'I don't know what else we can do'

Sunderland drew 0-0 against West Brom yesterday (Saturday, April 2) - but not for lack of trying.

The Blackcats bombarded the goal, particularly in the second half, but just couldn't break through the last line of defence - goalkeeper Ben Foster.

Speaking after the game, Sunderland manager Sam Allardyce said: "I don't know what else we can do, I don't know what else I can say."

Former Sunderland footballer Adam Johnson has officially lodged an appeal against his conviction for one count of sexual activity with a child, Bradford Crown Court has confirmed.

The 28-year-old is also reported to be appealing his six year prison sentence, which was imposed last week for two counts of sexual activity with a child, and grooming.

Adam Johnson's jailing means it can now be reported the former England footballer was also arrested for possessing extreme pornography.

Images, thought to be of a "jokey nature" but bestiality-related, were found on his computer.

The arrest was mentioned in hearings at Durham Crown Court prior to Johnson's trial for engaging in sexual activity with a 15-year-old girl.

The ex-Sunderland winger has been jailed for six years for engaging in sexual activity with a besotted 15-year-old fan.

Police confirmed he has now been released from his bail in relation to the extreme pornography matter and no further action will be taken.
