Collins: Sunderland draw hurts but ‘a point is a point’

‘Ginger Pele’ scored a rare goal that almost was a winner

James Collins thought his second goal of the season was going to be the winning tally for West Ham against Sunderland on Saturday. But it proved not to be the case.

The West Ham fan favorite was denied all the headlines, as Fabio Borini’s 90th minute goal off another Darren Randolph mistake lead to the Hammers splitting the points with the Black Cats, 2-2 at the Stadium of Light.

The Welch international reflected on how devastating it was to concede late once again this season in a match.

“Disappointed more than anything else, to concede a late was always disappointing,” Collins said. “I thought we were reasonably comfortable after we scored the second goal. And it’s more like a loss, any late goal is more like a loss, but a point is a point.”

“To score two goals away from home should be more than enough. We probably haven’t defended either goal of well as we should have done. Just disappointed that we didn’t come up with three points. And it would have been a vital three points.”
