A hotly contested derby fixture at the Stadium of Light saw the shares spoiled between Sunderland and neighbours Middlesbrough.

The Black Cats took the lead through a Joel Asoro goal 10 minutes into the fixture, and that was how the scoreline stayed until the half time whistle - which came after 8 minutes added time.

The first 45 minutes also saw both sides reduced to ten men after Jake Clarke-Salter was sent off for a foul on Boro's Adama Traore, only for the Teesside number 37 to see red himself just over 10 minutes later.

Chris Coleman's side went into the break leading 1-nil.

The second half brought more drama, Patrick Bamford scored an equaliser just 5 minutes after the second 45 got underway, and a penalty scored by former Sunderland player Grant Leadbitter gave the visitors the lead at 1-2.

Sunderland substitute Jonny Williams fired the Black Cats level again before Patrick Bamford popped up to score the 3rd for Middlesbrough to put them back in the lead.

Another 6 minutes added time was awarded as it looked like Tony Pulis's team were heading down the A19 with 3 points only for Callum McManaman to save the blushes, firing home the equaliser for Sunderland.

It ended evens at 3-3 with Sunderland earning a vital home point after 104 minutes of football.
