Sunderland went ahead in the 32nd minute. Cisse raced onto Whitehead’s pass and had a shot saved by Steve Harper. The rebound landed at the Frenchman’s feet and he made no mistake. It was no more than Sunderland deserved.

The Black Cats scented blood but could not find a second goal and Newcastle came back strongly after the break.

George McCartney had to head off the line in the 50th minute as Sunderland tried to weather the black and white storm early in the second half.

Newcastle had a strong penalty shout turned down in the 54th minute as Damien Duff went down in the box folllowing a challenge by Anton Ferdinand.

The outcome, however, was different in the 67th minute when Taylor went shoulder to shoulder with Malbranque in the box. Webb pointed to the spot, Sunderland could not believe it, and Ameobi scored.

A mixture of good defending and a bit of luck kept Newcastle out afterwards and the Black Cats had a great chance to win it just before the end.

Substitute Chopra found himself in a threatening position in the 86th minute but he opted to square it to Jones. The pass was over-hit and the chance went begging. There was a collective groan from Sunderland’s fans.

Reid, another substitute, hit a shot just past the post in injury time as Sunderland threatened to secure another 2-1 win at St. James’ Park
