Poyet on travelling support


Head coach praises 'incredible' fans.

Sunderland head coach Gus Poyet has described the Black Cats’ near sell-out away following at Swansea as ‘incredible’.

The Uruguayan was delighted to hear up to a 1,000 fans will be making the 700-mile round trip to the Liberty Stadium.

And he says it’s up to his squad to make the trip an enjoyable one for the fans.

“It’s incredible for the fans to go all that way,” the 45-year-old said. “That’s why it’s so important for us to build a relationship with our fans.

“Our aim now is to make sure that the long way back for them is a happy one.

“That in some parts is in our hands but of course Swansea will also pay their part and it will depend what we do and how we play.

“We’re going to try everything we can to please the fans.”
