O'Neill backing Danny to score
MARTIN O'Neill has again backed Danny Graham to start scoring for Sunderland as the wait goes on for his first Black Cats goal.
Graham is yet to find the net in six games since his £5 million move to Sunderland from Swansea City in January.
"He hasn't played that much for us. What Danny would have loved to have done is what Steven Fletcher did — come in, score goals immediately, win the fans over and play very well," O'Neill said.
"At the moment, both he and the side are coming to terms with a change of pattern of play, but I have got no problems that he will get some goals for us.

"Of course, he would like to get them as soon as possible. But during the course of time — he will take a little time to settle in, but sometimes it happens."
Struggling Sunderland have won only two points since Graham's arrival.
