Commentary

Minute   Description
90' +4 S. Sessègnon has scored a goal for Sunderland! Assist by Carlos Cuéllar.
GOAL! It's a complete case of game over now as Stephane Sessegnon caps a fine performance with a much deserved goal. 3-0 to Sunderland and it's a complete whitewash.
90' +2 Another stat attack: the visitors have had 15 shots, which is now more than the home side. But they have lacked the finishing touches to make the hosts pay. It's been a feisty defensive performance from Sunderland here, and they will take hope from that going into their next game against Man United.
90' Oh dear... a Reading player trips up in an attempt to regain possession. Perhaps their season so far summarised in one moment right there. Five minutes of injury time for them to salvage something from the game.
89' Sessegnon stopped by the referee for a foul on a Royals defender, but the forward could have been through on goal if not for a slightly harsh decision.
87' The clock is ticking and it is looking like a job very well done for the home side here at the Stadium of Light. This will be only their second home win all season, but it could rarely be more important.
84' The visitors appear to already be looking ahead to their next fixture. Sadly, though, it doesn't get any easier: Arsenal at home. No one said it was going to be easy... but did anyone say it would be this hard?
82' It is Sunderland v Federici here as Craig Gardner has a strike from the edge of the box saved by the Australian. Sessegnon was heavily involved in the build-up once more, but Federici was not having any of it and produced yet another first-class stop.
80' Stat attack: Sunderland have had 14 shots to the visitors' 12. The figures represent a generally open and attacking game. Fair play to two sides making a game of it and having a go when needed.
79' Let's take a moment to appreciate the visiting keeper's contribution today. Were it not for Federici, it could easily be four or five for Sunderland, here.
78' SAVE! Fantastic reflexes from Federici again. Sessegnon broke through and found McClean in acres of space. The 23-year-old midfielder took a touch and went for a cutely-placed shot into the bottom corner. Federici, however, was equal to the strike. It could have been game over.
