Jack Colback: Insists everyone is working hard to turn around Sunderland's fortunes
Sunderland youngster Jack Colback insists everyone is working hard to turn around the club's slow start to the new season.
The Black Cats currently find themselves fourth from bottom in the table having garnered just six points from their opening eight fixtures.
The pressure is firmly on manager Steve Bruce to turn things around and Colback insists no one is panicking at the Stadium of Light.
The 21-year-old accepts it has been a tricky start to the campaign and he believes the players are fully behind Bruce.
"You go into every game feeling under pressure, the fans want to win every game and that's to be expected," he told the Northern Echo.
"It's been a tricky start but I think a few of the games could easily have gone the other way, and it would have been a different story.
"Nobody's panicking, everybody's calm and everybody's completely behind the manager. We can turn it around."
Sunderland suffered their fourth Premier League defeat of the new season on Sunday following a 2-1 loss to Arsenal.
Colback believes The Black Cats were unlucky to lose as he felt they had done enough to claim a point from their trip to London.
"We're very disappointed, we thought we had done enough to come away with at least a point, but Arsenal had a lot of the ball and obviously that's to be expected," he continued. "We created chances ourselves, and we're very disappointed to come away with a defeat.
"I should have scored for one, Catts' header - the keeper made a great save - these are the sorts of chances that we need to put away at a place like Arsenal. If you miss chances like that you are going to struggle."
