Sunderland defender Billy Jones is hoping to make the Stadium of Light a fortress after the club picked up their first Premier League home win of the season against Hull City earlier this month.
The Black Cats won back-to-back games for the first time this term with a 2-1 victory at Bournemouth and 3-0 success over Hull which saw them temporarily move off the bottom but Saturday's 2-0 loss at Liverpool saw Swansea City jump above them.
"We want to make the Stadium of Light a fortress so now we've got that first home win we want to build on it," Jones said.
"During the game against Hull the fans were amazing, as they always are, so we know we'll have that backing this weekend and we just want to give them results.
"We want to make the Stadium of Light a hard place for teams to come, and for them to know that when they come to Sunderland it's going to be a tough game, that they aren't going to get much from."
Sunderland, who are three points adrift of the safety zone after 13 games, host 14th placed Leicester City on Saturday.
