Cattermole not to blame, insists Poyet

MISTAKES ... Cattermole.
MISTAKES ... Cattermole.

GUS Poyet refused to blame Lee Cattermole after Sunderland crashed out of the FA Cup against Hull City.

The Black Cats’ hopes of a second trip to Wembley were dashed as goals from Curtis Davies, David Meyler and Matty Fryatt gave Hull a 3-0 win.

But Poyet refused to pin any blame on Cattermole who was arguably at fault in the move which led to Meyler’s second even before his back-pass howler allowed Fryatt the chance to seal the win.

Poyet said: “If you hide and you’re not in the game and do nothing to take a risk, then for sure you’re not going to make any (mistakes).

“That’s the bad side of football – the ones that take responsibility and the ones that care, they are the ones who are in the position to make the mistakes – that’s football.”
