Behind at half-time of their home game against Stoke on Monday, Sunderland gained a vital 1-1 draw despite having Craig Gardner sent off before the break.

Belgian international Mignolet believes that the response from the players gives a clear indication that the Black Cats will secure their Premier League future.

"The most important thing is that it's still in our hands," said Mignolet.

"We've got a really big game on Sunday against Southampton and hopefully we can take that second-half display [against Stoke] into that game.

"If the crowd helps us through again we can win the three points and get ourselves safe. It's about getting three points on Sunday and making sure we win, then it depends on what other teams are doing, but we'll see about that after the game.

"We have to deal with our own performances and if everyone puts in a display like we did in the second half against Stoke there will be nothing to worry about."

Sunderland sit in 15th position, three points ahead of Wigan Athletic and with a better goal difference than both Norwich and Newcastle.

was there, it was embarrassing - the team looked totally unbalanced from the off, the defence was woeful and when Mikel came off injured it got even worse with nobody in front of them. Up front on several occasions we had opportunities and nobody would shoot - it was a complete farse! On the back of Salah's performance I'm glad there is talk of getting shot...

reat to see Tommy Rosicky getting some love. A wonderful player. Such a pity we lost so long to injury. I was so excited when we signed him, this resurgence only makes the absences seem more of a lost opportunity.
