BBC Sport - Gus Poyet: Sunderland boss says 'sometimes you need luck'

Sometimes you need luck - Poyet

Manager Gus Poyet admits "sometimes you need the luck" after Sunderland win 3-1 at Crystal Palace in the Premier League.

Referee Phil Dowd turned down a first-minute penalty appeal from Palace, who were beaten by two Steven Fletcher goals and one from Jordi Gomez.

Poyet, whose side climbed out of the bottom three with the victory, added he "couldn't believe" his side scored a third own goal in as many games - this one from Wes Brown.
