James McClean: Confident he can recapture his best form

Sunderland winger James McClean is confident he can recapture his form from last season.

The Republic of Ireland international is determined not to be known as a 'one-season wonder' having so far failed to hit the heights of last term.

McClean had a sensational campaign last season, but so far things have not gone as well this term, although this week did see him score his first goal in eight months in the 3-0 win over Reading.

"I can turn it around and get back to where I was. I want to top last season's performance," he said.

"A lot of attention comes my way on the pitch compared to when I first broke through and no-one had heard of me.

"I could play with a bit more freedom then but now they know what to expect from me.

"It's down to me to get back to the levels I was at last season and maybe I can do that with the help around me but it's mainly down to myself."
