Soccer – Allardyce ready for nerve-tester


Sunderland manager Sam Allardyce is desperate to claim three points from this weekend’s Premier League encounter with Aston Villa.

The Black Cats, who have had a bid for the Ivory Coast international defender Lamine Kone accepted by Lorient, are seven points away from safety after losing 1-0 at home to Liverpool on Wednesday and are 1/10 with Bet365 to be relegated this season.
Allardyce has struggled to lift the Black Cats since replacing Dick Advocaat in the Stadium of Light hot-seat and knows that three points against rock-bottom Villa will be vital to his side’s survival chances. Sunderland are 11/1 to beat Aston Villa 2-0.
Allardyce said: “We’ve got to face the fact that you can always lose against Liverpool even if you play your best. What you have to do is play your best against Aston Villa and win.
“That’s what we’ve got to do. That’s the real nerve-tester now.”
