RK: 'It's a massive game'

Losing 7 of 9 away games inevitably puts pressure on the team's home games, and Aston Villa are next-in-line to visit the Stadium of Light.

The Black Cats dropped back into the Premier League's bottom-three at the weekend after opposition result went against them. However, there is not much difference in terms of points amongst the bottom-half, so they will look to escape the depths when they take on the Villains on Saturday.

Keane said: "We have to lick our wounds and get ready for Villa who have a decent away record. It's another massive game."
