JACK Colback insists Sunderland need to register a hat-trick of victories at the Reebok Stadium to ensure they stay in touch with the top 10.
The Black Cats guaranteed Premier League survival by winning at Bolton last season and marked the first game of Steve Bruce’s reign with a win there the year before.
Sunderland desperately require a third successive victory in the North West on Saturday, with just goal difference separating them from the third bottom Trotters.
Bruce’s men have come under scrutiny after just one win in their opening eight games of the campaign and lie four points adrift of the top half – where they finished last season for the first time in a decade.
Colback said: “We should be picking up a result against the likes of Bolton. We went there last year and won and the year before.
“We will be going there with confidence we can take three points again.
“We need to pick up points now because the gap is getting bigger and bigger between us and the top 10, which is where we want to be.
“You go into every game feeling under pressure, the fans want to win every game and that is to be expected.
“It has been a tricky start but a few of the games could easily have gone the other way and then it would have been a different story.
“Nobody is panicking, everybody is calm and everybody is completely behind the manager. We can turn it around.”
