And midfielder McGeehan is convinced an important statement has been delivered.

He said: ‘Sunderland started quite fast and the first goal has killed them – and it could have been three or four in the end.

‘They went close last year as well and it’s important to beat those teams in the run in because it’s a confidence booster for us.

‘It’s three points on the board and I think it sends out a little bit of a message.

‘I think the club is in a very good place at the minute, there is momentum and big performances against big teams.

‘It’s a good time to start hitting the form you need to go on towards the end of the season.

‘There’s a really good togetherness among the lads, you can see that in the performances, a lot of hard work goes into it and reaps the rewards in the end.

‘It was quite comfortable today. In the second half, especially, we got a foothold.’
