SEB LARSSON is confident Sunderland can convert promise into points as the Black Cats prepare to lock horns with their fellow strugglers.

Sunderland’s four games prior to the international break were far more encouraging from Steve Bruce’s new-look side, yet the Wearsiders still find themselves lingering down in 15th spot in the Premier League table.

But that will change if Bruce’s men can maximise their return from a run of inviting fixtures against sides also at the wrong end of the table – Fulham, Wigan, Wolves and Blackburn.

Prior to tomorrow night’s clash with England at Wembley, Swedish midfielder Larsson believes Sunderland’s influx of summer signings have found their feet and can re-establish themselves in the top half.

Larsson, who will miss Saturday’s clash with Fulham through suspension, said: “The four games after the international break are definitely the types where we’ve got to look to pick up some points.

“But we’ve started to look a lot better throughout the 90 minutes.

“Looking at the next fixtures, we should be picking up points and I think we will.”
