Moyes apologised to the Sunderland fan base and said his thoughts are with them as the club's 10-year Premier League stint came to an end.

"I know that cash isn't easy in this part of the country, so I appreciate every penny they put into the club by watching their team". I will sit with the local journalists in time and speak with them in time.

"We have come back a few times with some great fightbacks but weren't able to do it this season", the Republic of Ireland global said.

Having taken just one point from a possible 45 on their travels, Hull's chorinic problmems on the road are in danger of dragging them under. "We have to keep that, keep that positive attitude as much as we can and give the fans something to cheer about".

Sunderland secured relegation early Saturday morning following a 1-0 loss versus Bournemouth. Twelve months ago, everyone was saying the best appointment was David Moyes.

Moyes said: "We have just got ourselves relegated today and I want a bit of time to think about it".

Cherries boss Eddie Howe said: "Any away game in the Premier League is very tough".

"We have got the wins to get that momentum at the right time to get us over the line", O'Shea said of previous escapes.

The gloom surrounding the Stadium of Light following the defeat can be summed up by the statement released by Ellis Short, the owner and chairman of the club. Not so pleased with the performance but to get over the 40-point mark today is massive for the football club.

"It's a collective thing from top to bottom - it's wrong to blame any individual. We need to improve both on and off the field and there is a strong determination to do so".

However, Gosling travelled to London to undergo an additional scan which revealed further information ahead of tomorrow's trip to Sunderland (3pm). "There is significant work to be done over the summer and when the season is concluded, we intend to share our plans to move forward with our supporters", he added.
