  • Sunderlands first Premier League victory of the season will give the club new vigour and energy, says Niall Quinn. Homme Nike Vandal High Supreme Obsidienne/Obsidienne-Blanche 318330-402 . Sunderland ended their winless start to the league season with a dramatic 2-1 win despite having Steven Pienaar sent-off with the game at 1-1.Things looked bleak for under-pressure David Moyes, who had taken just two points from his first 10 league games in charge, but Jermain Defoe scored from the penalty spot on 74 minutes to steal all three points.  The win moves Sunderland level on five points with Swansea, but they remain bottom on goal difference.Quinn believes Moyes now has something to build on.Hell be so pleased inside, Quinn told Sky Sports.  There has been a lot of pressure on his shoulders and hes tried to handle it the best he could - some people have even questioned whether they shouldve changed the manager again, which is ludicrous in my opinion, regardless of what happened today. David Moyes praised the spirit of his Sunderland team as they came back from a goal down It was an enormous job to come in and sort out what Sam Allardyce had left. Today will feel good for him - it can give everyone new vigour and new energy. The players will now go on international duty but theyll know the club will be a good place to come back to next week.Sunderlands rearguard action came to the fore in the closing stages at The Vitality Stadium as goalkeeper Jordan Pickford starred for Moyes men. Eddie Howe was left frustrated after Bournemouth lost to Sunderland Bournemouth had 22 shots in the match and registered seven on target but Pickford repelled their efforts with a string of stops, including a wonder save from Josh King. Pickford was different class, Quinn said. We can call him a kid because he is one in goalkeeping terms. He is a complete novice but the character hes shown is fantastic. Young players can be forgiven for making mistakes and not being ready for a tough situation but he was banging his chest at the end of the game. Jermain Defoe (left) scored Sunderlands winning goal from the penalty spot Hes a young lad that has seized the moment. In an ideal world hed be playing for a winning team that dont concede many chances but hes been called into action time and time again in recent weeks. He got his rewards today. For a young lad like that to take the game by scruff of the neck, it has to bode well for the future.
