Dickson Etuhu insists Sunderland will be out to claim all three points against Aston Villa.
The Black Cats slipped into the Premier League relegation zone last weekend after losing 2-0 at Chelsea.
Villa, who have won three consecutive away games, head to the Stadium of Light on Saturday and Etuhu is expecting a tough test.
But while the midfielder accepts a draw would be a good result, he wants Sunderland to build on the recent home win over Derby County.
"Every point is valuable for us right now," Etuhu told Sky Sports News.
"We are not looking to get a point, we will be trying to win the game because we are at home.
"It will be a tough game and obviously a point would be good."
