Nicklas Bendtner’s second half goal was the winner for the Black Cats as a miserable Reds performance was produced.
Dalglish told the BBC after the game, “I think it was a frustrating afternoon for everyone. It was a high tempo game and was always going to be a bit of fortune that won it.
“We reacted well when we went behind, but sometimes you just don’t get the bounce of the ball. I think we played as well as them.
“There wasn’t much in it at all, we tried to get something out of it but we were playing a team that’s on a good run. Sometimes you get the luck, sometimes you don’t.
“We’ll move onto the next game and it would be nice to see some good fortune.”
