Healy: I let my standards drop

Healy came off the bench to score his first goal for Roy Keane's side at Scunthorpe on Tuesday night and revealed he felt unwanted at the Stadium of Light - where he made just seven appearances this term. Healy said: "When I was training with Sunderland this season I knew deep down that I wasn't going to play. "It's easy to let your standards drop in those circumstances although I shouldn't have let it happen. I let myself down a little bit but I'd been out in the cold for so long. "The manager said our substitutes could make an impact at Scunthorpe and although my goal did not prove to be a winner it was worth a deserved point."
