Scott relishing run-in

Scott Parker described every game as 'massive' as we approach the the business end of the season.

We've seven matches remaining in the Premier League starting with a busy Easter schedule - an early 12.45pm kick-off at Sunderland on Saturday followed by Norwich at the Lane at 3pm on Monday.

A trip to Wembley is just around the corner as well as we face Chelsea in the semi-final of the FA Cup on Sunday week, April 15.

The squad's thoughts are only on the Stadium of Light for the moment though.

"Every game is massive now and it's great to be involved," said Scott.

"We've seven league matches left and we just want to win as many as possible. It's all about results now. I'm sure we'll have to grind a few out, but results are all that matter at this stage."

Sunderland are up to ninth in the table and lost just two of their first 13 matches in all competitions on Martin O'Neill's arrival in December - one of those was in his second game, our 1-0 win at the Lane.

The Black Cats showed their new-found form with a 3-3 at title-chasing City last weekend when they led 3-1 only to be hauled back by two late goals.

In doing so, they became the first team to take league points at the Etihad this season.

"They were excellent at City and unlucky not to win," added Scott.

"Sunderland is always a tough place to go anyway but they've really picked up under Martin O'Neill.

"They are so well organised, work hard and it will be a difficult game."
