David Moyes admits tomorrow's clash with Leicester is now a must-win game for Sunderland.
The Black Cats remain rooted to the foot of the table following Saturday's 1-0 defeat at Watford - who triumphed courtesy of Miguel Britos' header - and Moyes says only a win will do as Sunderland attempt to pull off another great escape.
"There's no time to dwell as we must go again on Tuesday - we pick ourselves up and I've told the players that," he said. "We wanted a win from one of these two games and we didn't get it, we came close to getting something, but we'll have to try and get it on Tuesday against Leicester now.
"We deserved a point at least at Watford. I thought we stuck at it and we need to make more of our performance next time out.
"I was frustrated by the lack of chances we created, that's been a problem for a while for us.
"We pushed for an equaliser but it wasn't to be."
