|CARLOS CREDITS KEANE|
Trinidad and Tobago midfielder Carlos Edwards has given credit where it's due, praising manager Roy Keane for getting the best out of his players in their fight to avoid relegation.
The "Black Cats" have won their last three matches with Edwards and Kenwyne Jones involved in each of the wins.
"Roy did a bit of reshuffling and he's now getting to the key things he wants us to do," Edwards told BBC Radio Newcastle.
"You have to learn quickly playing in the Premier League.We didn't win the last three games by luck and it's down to the players and the management to keep doing what we have been doing recently."
Since recovering from his hamstring injury Edwards has seen several new faces around the club, and has been impressed with one in particular.
"You want a player like Phil Bardsley behind you, as you have someone solid and who'll mash up the play down that side.
"All our wingers would dread coming against Phil because he's one of those guys who never shies away from a tackle."
Meantime, a player who has been out of action for some time now is simply relieved that he is now officially attached to a club. Brent Sancho after tying up an 18-month deal with Scottish club Ross County, is anxious ahead of his new deal.
"It's just relief really to get a new team I have played in three practice games for them so far. The facilities are excellent here and I hope to do enough to get myself back into a regular mindset of playing the game again and making a valuable contribution," Sancho said.
