We want to put things right - Kent

Ryan Kent says City will learn from last week's defeat against Bolton, as they look to get back to winning ways against Sunderland.

The Liverpool-loaned winger impressed in the match at the Macron Stadium, although he sets himself higher standards.

He told BCTV: "It was nice to get another start under my belt although I wasn't at the level I wanted to be.

"I'm sure all the boys weren't at the level they wanted to be but it's another learning experience because we will come up against other teams who will play like a block.

"We have been working on that in Dubai, to play against those sorts of teams.

"We're expecting Sunderland to play in a similar style to Bolton, we've experienced that but hopefully we have the right ideas now as to how to beat them."

THE DUBAI EXPERIENCE

"It was a good experience and it was something that was required for us new boys," he continued.

"We've had some bonding and socialising time in a different environment so that was good.

"The main point of going out there was to reflect on what's happened so far. We had a disappointing result against Bolton but since then we've been out there training and we are now hoping to put things right against Sunderland."

City beat Sunderland 2-1 at the Stadium Of Light back in October, thanks to headers from Bobby Reid and Milan Djuric.

Fast forward four months and City are in a play-off promotion fight, while the Black Cats under former Wales boss Coleman are doing all they can to avoid the drop.
