Sunderland are desperate for home comforts. The Black Cats haven't won a league match at home since December last year. Simon Grayson's team have a chance to put an end to their rotten run on Wearside when they face Nottingham Forest on 12 September.
"It's been a gradual decline of results at home. So what we've got to do is try and do whatever's required, because before you know it, you win a game at home it can suddenly become a different place."

Sunderland boss Simon Grayson has admitted his interest in West Ham midfielder Robert Snodgrass.
The 29-year-old Scotland international has been told he can leave his current club just seven months after his arrival from Hull in a £10.2 million deal.
Grayson had revealed earlier this week that the Black Cats had missed out on a move for Bournemouth's Max Gradel despite reaching an agreement with the Cherries.
Asked if he was interest in Snodgrass, with whom he worked with at Leeds, Grayson told a press conference: "When people like him become available you would be foolish not to consider it.
"Again, that would be a deal dictated by finances. Can we do it? Who knows, but we might ask the question."
Sunderland were trying to take the Ivorian from Bournemouth but he has decided to join French side Toulouse on a season-long loan.Read the full story ›
