Sunderland slipped back into the Premier League drop zone today.

But Jermain Defoe’s stoppage time penalty rescued a potentially pivotal point, in a 1-1 draw at Stoke.

Here’s how some Sunderland fans reacted on Twitter.

@Capt_Fishpaste: We didn’t deserve a bloody thing from that. Not a damned thing.

@88NTaylor: Hope is actually the worst thing. 93 minutes we are relegated. 94 we aren’t yet. Don’t like this. Rather just be done with football

@AndrewLonsdale7: Newcastle were always going to win today, massive point that for us, keep believing lads! Oh and @IAmJermainDefoe I love you

@MaloyJordan: Too many draws will cost us, Southampton, Palace, WBA Newcastle, that’s 8 points chucked away

@janey1000: #SAFC will have me in coronary care before my time

@barry_pollock: Not the best performance but how big a point could that be for us?

@PeteThomps: Big Sam has been rightly praised for his January signings, but N’Doye was a massive fail. Offers nothing

@AJ_FTM: We stole a point there like. Will take it since we where crap.

@76skelly: Take about escaping at the death

@DavidLittlefai5: What a great point for safc still favourites to stay up red and white army haway the lads.

@samsonplace: Said for weeks we are down. Not changing view

@Parsden: Well that could have been worse but it could have been an awful lot better

@blakes999: Draws at this part of the season aren’t good enough

@rstaincliffe1: I think from remaining games nufc will get 3 points and Norwich 4... We need at least 4 points from 3 games

@eblyth1970: We were awful today mind but there goal was controversial , justice prevailed I’ve never been so pleased to get a point

@RGHanson93: In all likelihood we’ll be four points behind going into the Everton game, big opportunity wasted today

@CraigS007: What a point. Absolutely huge

@mksavage73: Great point for #safc still well in our hands. Doesn’t matter what the mags do

@GTunk: That said, #SAFC steal a point with a cool finish by Defoe from the spot. Deserved nothing, got something. Crucial.

@ryan_james_19: Our game in hand just became massively massive!
