Commentary

Minute   Description
90' +4 Colback has acres of space on the left and has a go at goal, but it's tipped just over and onto the top of the net by Begovic.
There's no time for the corner as Madley signals full-time. The Stadium of Light erupts as Sunderland earn a massive three points.
90' +3 Mannone comes out to the edge of the area to collect a cross. He drops the first, but recovers well under pressure and begins a break the other way.
90' +2 Guidetti sneaks in behind the defence and goes down looking for a penalty, but his appeals are rightfully turned aside.
90' J. Guidetti enters the game and replaces P. Odemwingie.
Four minutes of added time, as Stoke desperately search for an equalizer...
89' Arnautovic now with some great footwork on the left side of the box, as he escapes O'Shea and crosses it in, and Wes Brown nearly puts his clearance attempt into his own net! What a disaster that would have been.
88' Stoke desperately trying to push forward, as a shifty Pieters tries to work his way into the box, but O'Shea shows his class in defence as he stands his ground, wins the tackle and clears the danger.
87' C. Gardner enters the game and replaces A. Johnson.
86' BROWN! The centre back does well to attack the corner, but his header is just inches high! That should have sealed it for Sunderland.
85' Sunderland finally push forward and create a chance of their own. Borini running at the defence, and has a go, but his shot is blocked by Wilson and is out for a corner.
83' Excellent strength shown by Odemwingie to post up and keep possession in the box. It's eventually cleared, but only as far as Cameron, whose cross in from the right is met by Shawcross who heads off the top of the bar! So close there from the visitors!
