Sunderland 2 QPR 2: Highlights after Seny Dieng’s equaliser plus Ross Stewart and Ellis Simms goals

Sunderland were held to a dramatic 2-2 draw against QPR at the Stadium of Light after a late equaliser from Rangers goalkeeper Seny Dieng.

Alex Neil’s side took a two-goal lead in the first half courtesy of finishes from Ross Stewart and Ellis Simms.

The hosts looked like they would see the game out before Ilias Chair’s free-kick halved the deficit.

Dieng then headed home an equaliser after coming up for a corner in stoppage-time.
