Sunderland defender Jenson Seelt reacts to his team’s 1-0 defeat over Leicester at the Stadium of Light.
Jenson Seelt feels Sunderland responded well after going down against Leicester, but admits the team has to start scoring points.

The Black Cats suffered their sixth successive Championship defeat, losing 1-0 to the league leaders, with Jamie Vardy scored the game’s only goal in the 13th minute. After a rocky start, Sunderland responded well and applied late pressure but were unable to secure an equaliser at the Stadium of Light.

When questioned about the first 15 minutes and how Sunderland responded to falling behind, Seelt said: “Honestly, it felt like they played with a man extra, they were really good and had a high tempo, but I think after the 15 minutes, we started doing better and better and grew into the game.” I thought we played a really good second half. We should keep going like this and maybe start winning and gaining momentum.”

Sunderland has lost their last five matches by a single goal, scoring only twice. They have also failed to keep a clean sheet since a 2-0 victory over Preston on New Year’s Day.

“It’s harsh,” Seelt said when questioned about the five-match losing streak. “In the end, we need look at ourselves because if you get into certain spots, especially around the 18-yard box, we may need to be more aggressive or brave. We need to find a way to score more goals because that is the only way to earn points.”
