  • It's all over. Sunderland have done it. Their fourth straight 1-0 home win over Manchester City thanks to Phil Bardsley's first-half strike. 1-0.

  • Lescott leaps to head wide and that is surely it.

  • Kolarov's free-kick is headed behind by Bardsley for a corner. Pantilimon is up...

  • Wes Brown is named Man of the Match and it's hard to disagree. There's still a minute to be played as City are awarded a free-kick in a crossing position. Kolarov to take.

  • Larsson is hacked down by Aguero just inside the City half and Sunderland have a free-kick. As you can imagine, they're in no rush to take it.

  • City have got three minutes of added time to try and find an equaliser.

  • There's a real sense of tension inside the Stadium of Light with seconds of normal time remaining. Poyet doesn't look too pleased as the ball is returned quickly after going out for a throw-in.

  • Gardner clears Nasri's corner upfield. Every single Sunderland man is camped inside their own area, but Poyet wants them out.

  • No clear-cut chances for City in the last few minutes but they have got a corner as Bardsley blocks Navas' cross. That's the story of the second-half right there.

  • Fabio Borini replaces Adam Johnson for Sunderland.

  • Brown wrestles away from Aguero before feeding Altidore. He can't quite get his foot on it though and City continue to press, Nasri strikes but it's blocked by Bardsley.

  • Sunderland are hanging in there as Navas' cross is blocked yet again. It's a case of every man behind the ball now.

  • All credit to Sunderland as they then go up the other end and Johnson's strike is collected by Pantilimon. You can't take your eyes off this.

  • Aguero pokes the ball to Kolarov who lets rip from the edge of the area, only to see his effort evade the crossbar by inches. Respite for Sunderland as they have a goalkick.

  • It's becoming incessant from City as Brown heads away Nasri's cross before Johnson clears upfield. Sunderland are pegged back in their own half and the visitors will go again.

  • It's a good delivery, Demichelis can't quite get to it but Dzeko can. He rises well before heading just wide of Mannone's goal. The home crowd roar Sunderland on.

  • Milner's cross comes off the legs of Celustka and City have another corner which Kolarov will take. Nervy for Sunderland.

  • Brown blocks Navas' cross with City piling on the pressure here. Excellent defending from Sunderland before Altidore breaks but can't find the run of Gardner.

  • Bardsley is there again as he beats Zabaleta to the ball to poke it behind for a corner, it's taken quickly, Aguero heads back across goal before Larsson puts it behind again.

  • Jozy Altidore replaces Steven Fletcher for Sunderland.
