Martin O'Neill says Sunderland's win over Reading is 'a relief'

Sunderland manager Martin O'Neill says moving out of the relegation zone is "a relief" after his side's 3-0 win over Reading on Wednesday.

First-half goals from James McClean and Steven Fletcher virtually settled the match after 45 minutes, with Stephane Sessegnon's goal rounding off a vital win.

O'Neill praises the "brilliant" crowd for getting behind Sunderland, and feels the three points are "important" to turning the club's fortunes around.
