Danny Welbeck Admits Sunderland Loan Spell Is Vital For His Career After Netting Winner Against Bolton Wanderers
Danny Welbeck has acknowledged the importance of his loan spell at Sunderland after the youngster scored the only goal in a 1-0 win at home to Bolton Wanderers.

Welbeck, who has been at the Stadium of Light on loan from Manchester United since August has been in prolific form and his 32nd minute strike against Owen Coyle's was the youngster fifth goal in six games.

Despite being expected to play second fiddle to the club's leading scorer last season, Darren Bent and summer signing Asamoah Gyan, the England U21 international has forced his way into Steve Bruce's starting eleven and the former United defender has expressed his interest in making the move permanent.

Welbeck said: "Obviously my aim when I came here was to get games under my belt and I feel like I'm strong and I'm fit and I'm just looking forward to carrying on with my performances. The loan spell was always going to be vital.

"We've got a great squad here, everyone's working well together and the team spirit's very high and it's showing on the pitch as well."

Sunderland leapfrogged Bolton into sixth place following the 1-0 victory and Welbeck declared his delight with the win, but acknowledged that the festive period will test his side, who's resources are looking considerably stretched, with John Mensah substituted with a hamstring injury in the first half.

Welbeck added: "Every game in the Premier League is going to be be tough but to get the three points today and go ahead of Bolton is  terrific and we're looking forward to going into the Christmas period."
