After a thoroughly disappointing 2-1 defeat at Manchester City, we could then only gain a single point at home to our local rivals Sunderland. Much like our display at Man City, we were once again awful in the first half, and played reasonably well in the second.

Djibril Cisse put the visitors ahead after Fabricio Coloccini failed to play the Frenchman offside, allowing Cisse a clean one-on-one with our new number one, Steve Harper. Harper did well to save Cisse's initial shot on goal, only for the striker to prod home the rebound with an open goal.
