Danny Rose urges Sunderland to bounce back against Norwich City

Danny Rose wants Sunderland to bounce back from last week's defeat to relegation rivals QPR when they host Norwich City today.

The defender returned from injury as a second-half substitute at Loftus Road but could not prevent his side losing 3-1.

'We're all disappointed, it was a game we wanted to win and if not it was certainly a game we didn't want to lose,' he said.

'Norwich is a big game, I'm looking forward to it whether I'm in the team or not and I'm looking forward to myself and the lads bouncing back positively and hopefully getting three points.'

Rose is also hoping to put his personal frustrations behind him having missed the last three games with a hamstring problem.

'I haven't missed that many games with there being an international break and a cup weekend so that's been good on that side,' he told the Sunderland website. 'I'm just looking forward to hopefully getting back into the team.'
