David Moyes insists Sunderland are still improving despite failing to register a single league win this season.
Moyes' side travel to Southampton on Wednesday in hope of advancing into the quarter finals of League cup. The manager says that facing the Saints is a great opportunity to showcase they've turned a corner.
I think it's a game we can do with because I think it's another game to show we are improving, to show we're doing better and we have been slightly.
We go to Southampton who are playing very well. We drew there earlier on (in the season), if we can do that then we get extra time and penalties."

Tracey Lavery is back from London after watching her daughter Sam cruise through to week four on The X Factor. She told ITV News Tyne Tees that a standing ovation from Simon Cowell is a dream come true for the 17-year-old singer from County Durham.
"I was immensely proud watching my little girl perform one of Michael Jackson's biggest songs live on stage in London. I had goosebumps. The atmosphere is electric when it's live. I left Sam last night feeling elated. She loved doing that performance and to get Simon Cowell on his feet for her was her biggest dream come true. She said the support from home is so inspirational, she wants to do this so much, and thanks everyone from the bottom of her heart."
Sam made it through to next week but had to say goodbye to fellow contestant and friend Relley C.
Sam Lavery, 17, sailed through to week four of The X Factor competition on ITV. The singer, from County Durham, belted out a rock arrangement of Michael Jackson's The Earth Song for Diva Week. She made it through to Fright Night next weekend based on the public vote.
