Sunderland manager David Moyes: Draw with Burnley was not enough
Sunderland manager David Moyes said Saturday's home 0-0 draw against Burnley "isn't enough" as his side slumped closer to Premier League relegation.
Moyes was frustrated after bottom-of-the-table Sunderland failed to make the most of a game against a team without an away win to their name in the league all season.
They are now seven points off safety and Moyes said of the result: "It's not enough -- it would have been down as one of the wins in my book, so now we have to turn one of the draws I had down into a win.
"The players know exactly how much it means and they know we have to win. We emphasised how big the game was, and they didn't lose -- but three points was really what we needed.''
Billy Jones and Sebastian Larsson missed good chances before Burnley keeper Tom Heaton denied Fabio Borini three minutes from time.
But Moyes knows it could have been worse, with Ashley Barnes missing a chance and Sam Vokes bringing a save from Jordan Pickford.
The manager said he hoped Sunderland could be boosted for the run-in by the return of injured players including Lee Cattermole and Victor Anichebe.
He added: "I think the one we're really looking to see is if we can get Victor back to give us a different look.
"There are no guarantees, but he is certainly doing a bit more running and getting closer.
"I think the main thing is to get them back but are they going to be match fit and up to speed? I hope we do get them back and they're both ready to play."
