Jack Colback's late equaliser for Sunderland at Cardiff was great news for one Sky Bet punter as it scooped £24,854.03 from an 11-fold accumulator.

It was looking like an agonising near-miss for the customer as the Cardiff City Stadium contest entered injury-time but Jack Colback was on hand in the fourth of five added minutes to secure a 2-2 draw for the Black Cats, who had been 2-0 down.

The presumably ecstatic punter won the huge prize by correctly predicting the outcomes of:

West Ham v West Brom - draw
Aston Villa v Swansea - draw
Hull to beat Fulham
Manchester City to beat Crystal Palace
Manchester United to beat Norwich
Cardiff v Sunderland - draw
Queen of the South to beat Cowdenbeath
Dundee to beat Dumbarton
Falkirk v Alloa - draw
Hamilton to beat Morton
Livingston to beat Raith

Sky Bet's Joe Petyt commented: "Congratulations to the customer for his fantastic win! There are some unbelievable picks in there including some big priced draws.

"It would have been interesting to see his reaction when the Sunderland equaliser went in deep into stoppage time!"

Sunderland remain bottom despite Colback's late leveller and can be backed at 5/6 for relegation.

Crystal Palace are the 4/7 favourites for the drop and Fulham are 5/4 to go down following a 6-0 defeat at Hull.

There are plenty of other clubs in the scrap for survival with Cardiff (6/4), West Ham (9/4), Norwich (11/4), Hull (9/2), West Brom (5/1) and Aston Villa (11/2) all feeling nervous.

Manchester City now sit top after working hard for a 1-0 win over Palace and are even-money favourites for the title.

Manchester United won 1-0 at Norwich and can be backed at 11/1 to retain their crown and evens for a top-four finish.
