Niall Quinn believes David Moyes should be afforded time to implement his own methods at Sunderland despite the clubs poor start to the season. The Wearsiders are bottom of the Premier League with just two points from their opening seven games and their only wins all season have come against lower-league opposition in the EFL Cup. Niall Quinn thinks David Moyes should be given more time to get things right at Sunderland Moyes has cut a figure of frustration more recently but Quinn - a former Sunderland player, manager and chairman - maintains he should be allowed to see the job through to next year at least. He told Sky Sports News HQ: He just needs to get about three months under his belt, to get his way into play and then maybe have a strong window in January, where he can get more assistance and perhaps do what Sam Allardyce did for the club.Its going to take a little bit longer. Hes different to what Sam had done. The club was unfortunate, of course, the man went off to manage England. Quinn admits Sunderlands season hasnt been good so far but has given Moyes his backing We now realise it was probably unfortunate Sam himself went off to manage England.They had a little bit of catching up to do and David Moyes came in, not with one arm tied behind his back, but he couldnt do a lot in the window.He was trying to get his team together and injuries have mounted on him as well.I suppose to be in contention and to get to January and get into a good place and maybe get a player or two - a goalscorer in particular - is probably what he needs to do.

Relying on Jermain Defoe, its going to be tough.Sunderlands most recent games saw them sacrifice a two-goal lead at home to Crystal Palace and lose 3-2 then come back to draw 1-1 at the Stadium of Light with West Brom.Despite that, Quinn maintains there were positives within the matches which should offer encouragement for the future. Sunderland gave up a 2-0 lead to lose 3-2 at home to Crystal Palace last month He added: Youve two home games there and on paper youre looking at six points - is that achievable? Four would be great.

A specific one that caught his eye was getting Dwight Howard in the post.The plan worked.With San Antonio missing big bodies Tim Duncan, who was rested along with fellow veteran Manu Ginobili, and Tiago Splitter (right calf tightness), Howard dominated the interior from the opening tip, scoring 32 points and grabbing 16 rebounds in leading Houston to a 98-81 victory.We looked at some stuff (on tape) and we got him in the post, McHale said. I thought (Howard) rolled hard and got some late at the rim. He was really devastating on those high passes. Its important that he gets in a rhythm and plays. It doesnt matter who is out there playing for them, hes got to play well for us.The win runs Houstons record to a league best 6-0 while dropping San Antonios mark to 2-2.With no Duncan or Splitter inside Houston had a decided advantage down low and exploited it from the beginning, feeding Howard at every turn. Whether on the pick-and-roll, at the elbow, or on alley-oop passes, Howard was the target and had a double-double — 20 points and 12 rebounds — by halftime as he exploited a vulnerable Spurs interior defence where Matt Bonner, Jeff Ayers, and Aron Baynes struggled to keep up.We are a sum-of-the-parts team, Popovich said. We have to have all our parts to be at our best. We cant rely on one player. We have to do it as a group. If we have injuries, we need our full bench to continue to play at our best.When Howard was not scoring inside, James Harden filled the stat sheet, adding 20 points, six rebounds and six assists for the Rockets. While he had his share of points, Harden was clear after the game about the advantage of having a force inside.Its tough with the best big man in the league rolling down the paint, Harden said of Howard.dddddddddddd Hes a lob target, and you have shooters around him. Its tough to guard it.As the Spurs struggled to keep Howard from gutting them in the middle, they had little consistency when they had the ball. They started the game sluggish, going scoreless in the first six minutes.While San Antonio rebounded and pulled to within 18-15 at the end of the first quarter, that was as close as the Spurs would get. The tough night finished with the defending NBA champs, who trailed by as many as 31, shooting just 34.4 per cent from the field.It was a bad night tonight and I couldnt hit a shot, Tony Parker, who finished with just six points, said. Defensively, we did OK, but we never got into an offensive rhythm.Cory Joseph led the Spurs with 18 points off the bench and Baynes had 12 points and 11 rebounds.TIP-INSSpurs: Marco Belinelli was an injury scratch due to a strained right groin and was replaced by Bonner. . San Antonio started 0-for-15 on 3-pointers, making their first with 7:02 to go in the third quarter, and finished 2 for 20 from beyond the arc.Rockets: Terrence Jones missed his second straight game with a leg contusion. . Patrick Beverley missed the game due to a strained hamstring and was replaced by Isaiah Canaan, who scored 12 points along with Jason Terrys 16 points. .
