The sold-out Sunderland support was superb, with more than 1,500 fans urging the Sunderland players on throughout the second half and they got their reward late on, James Vaughan and George Honeyman with the goals to lift Sunderland off the bottom of the table.

It was only Sunderland's second league win of the season and their first clean sheet. Sunderland fans have had little to celebrate all season but they enjoyed this win.
