BBC Sport - West ham 0-0 Sunderland: Gus Poyet making mark on Black Cats

Poyet making mark on Sunderland

Sunderland boss Gus Poyet says he can see evidence that he is making his mark on the Sunderland team, despite the Black Cats only drawing 0-0 at West Ham.

The Wearsiders earned their third away league point at Upton Park, with Phil Bardsley hitting a 25-yard shot against the crossbar in an uninspiring match.

Sunderland remain bottom of the Premier League and five points away from safety, but Poyet believes his methods are beginning to get through to the players, saying: "Today I saw my team on the pitch."
