  • Sunderland 2 Newcastle 1. All over the Black Cats take the derby spoils. First win of the season for them and could be the spark to ignite their campaign.

  • Finally Newcastle get the ball back. One last chance maybe? Krul hammers a free-kick long, but Shola Ameobi is beaten to the ball. Sunderland struggle to clear their lines, but Westwood can gather a tame shot from Cabaye. Should be it.

  • Sunderland win a third corner. Clock ticking on Newcastle's challenge. They can't get the ball back. More frustration as Fletcher wins a throw. Great work by the hosts.

  • Colback sends over a hopeful cross which deflects behind for a corner. Just where Sunderland want the ball. They send no-one forward. Newcastle desperate to get the ball back, but Fletcher wins another corner.

  • Sunderland fans enjoying themselves. The party had started, but there is still time to see out. Colback runs the Black Cats towards the corner flag.

  • Four minutes of stoppage-time to be played.

  • Poyet out on the touchline kicking every ball. He is waving players back. Only a few more minutes to hold out for the hosts. They can expect a Newcastle charge though in the closing minutes.

  • Santon fires long for Cisse to challenge. Newcastle try again, but a touch from Shola Ameobi runs through to Westwood. He takes as long as possible to clear his lines.

  • Nervy moment at the back for Sunderland. O'Shead gets a head to a ball as it is glanced into the box and it loops up over Westwood. He is able to recover in time and gather.

  • Krul off his line quickly to shut out Fletcher's route to goal. Sammy Ameobi has been sent on in place of Gouffran in Newcastle's final throw of the dice.

  • Cisse can't catch up with a hopeful cross sent through the box. Still time for Newcastle, but they need to make something happen soon if they are to haul themselves level again.

  • Wild celebrations all round. Poyet involved, fans on the pitch. Borini all over the place. That's what it means to score a winner in this game!

  • GOAL SUNDERLAND - BORINI. What a strike! Borini may have just claimed all three points. Ki feeds Colback, who moves the ball on to Altidore. He lays off to Borini who lashes into the top corner from 20 yards out.

  • Ameobi wide to Gouffran. He cuts across the field and finds Debuchy. He moves the ball on to Ben Arfa, who is allowed to drift onto his left foot. Too many bodies in the way as his shot is blocked.

  • Dossena does well to keep the ball in play and clear past Ben Arfa. Newcastle rushing things again and send a poor pass through to Westwood. Same from Sunderland as Dossena picks out Krul.

  • Nerves now filtering through from the stands onto the field. At the stage now where if you can't win it, make sure you don't lose it. Poyet and Pardew will be very much aware of that.

  • Fletcher actually wins the argument and fires a tame effort into the wall. Not sure why Larsson, given his record, passed up the opportunity.

  • Larsson already has the ball in his hands. No-one is going to get it off him. He places it carefully on the deck. Only 20 yards out so he will have to get the effort up and down quickly, or swung around the wall.

  • Celustka involved quickly, bursting down the right. He can't get past Santon, who is able to keep the ball in play. Newcastle make a meal of clearing their lines, with Sunderland pressing high. Altidore tripped on the edge of the box, dead centre, by Dummett.

  • Gouffran into Santon, a long way forward. He finds Tiote, who moves the ball on to Ameobi. He sees a 20-yard effort fizz past the post. Not far away.
