MICHAEL Turner has warned West Brom that Sunderland are confident of slaying anyone in their path as he enjoys the best run of his three year Black Cats career.

Sunderland have won eight of their 11 outings in 2012 to move into the top 10 of the Premier League table and reach the quarter finals of the FA Cup for the first time since 2004.

Although Sunderland suffered defeat in their last Premier League outing against Arsenal a fortnight ago, they immediately avenged the loss to the Gunners by advancing in the cup last weekend.

And centre-half Turner, expected to start his sixth successive game at the Hawthorns tomorrow, believes Sunderland are confident of getting back to winning ways in the league in the Black Country.

Turner told SportMail: “We’ve been confident going into every game just recently – we’ve been on a roll.”
