West Ham captain Kevin Nolan was pleased to win at a side who were eyeing up catching West Ham.

Andy Carroll scored the opening goal at the Stadium of Light and a second from Mo Diame put the Hammers clear.

Sunderland pulled one back through Adam Johnson but it was not enough to earn them anything.

“We knew it was going to be tough and Adam Johnson made an impact. We knew it would not be easy because they’re scrapping, but we knew if we won we’d be clear of them,” he told Sky Sports.

“We got the three points and put space between us and the bottom three.”
