|10/11||Sunderland are 10/11 with Coral to be relegated
Gus Poyet was appointed the new manager on Tuesday and Vaughan is optimistic about Sunderland's chances of survival despite being six points off safety already.
Midfielder Vaughan told The Mirror: “I can’t say too much about that, because the club have told us not to.
“Under Paolo, the players did have some good times but the club decided to change things, so it’s down to us to improve our results.
“We need points quickly, otherwise we will end up being cut adrift. There’s plenty to play for, so hopefully we can climb the table.”
