Keano targets win

Robbie Keane is aiming for what he says would be a ‘massive result' at Sunderland.

We go into Saturday's only Premier League fixture level on points with the Black Cats knowing that a victory would take us level with Fulham in tenth.

It would also be our third league win on the trot after beating Hull and Middlesbrough.

"Sunderland away is always a difficult game," said Robbie.

"They have some good players, a good squad and it will be tough but if we can get something out of it it will be good for us.

"We're level on points and if we can get a result it will be a massive one for us - and we're quite capable of going there and doing that."

Robbie marked his 200th league game in our colours with his first goal since rejoining us when he opened the scoring in the 4-0 win against Middlesbrough on Wednesday night.

He went on to set-up both of Aaron Lennon's goals in a fine performance.

"It's always nice to score but the important thing was to get the three points to push us up the table where we should be," said Robbie.

"The reality is we are where we are but if we can continue putting in performances like that we'll soon push up the table.

"We need to do that as soon as possible and we've the squad to do it, without a doubt."
