Sunderland secured a desperately needed first Premier League win of the season at Bournemouth today.

Victor Anichebe was outstanding up front and scored on his first league start for the Black Cats, cancelling out the Cherries’ opener.

Despite the dismissal of Steven Pienaar, David Moyes’ men showed great character to win all three points, with Jermain Defoe coolly converting a penalty.

Echo photographer Frank Reid took in the scenes of celebration in the Sunderland section at the Vitality Stadium.

The long journey home will certainly seem a bit shorter now
