Minute Commentary
90' BORINI SENDS SUNDERLAND INTO RAPTURES
Sunderland looked to have thrown away their first win of the season when Mathieu Debuchy turned Hatem Ben Arfa's wayward drive into the net to cancel out Steven Fletcher's early opener. However, Gus Poyet made some intelligent substitutions with two of them involved in the winning goal. Sung-Yueng Ki, who had replaced the industrious Lee Cattermole, picked out Jozi Altidore with a fine pass. The striker laid the ball into the path of substitute Fabio Borini and the loanee smashed a swirling shot pas Tim Krul. The goal left Newcastle, who had been on top for most of the match, too little time to respond and the home fans celebrated their first win of the season.
90' FULL-TIME
The referee blows the full-time whistle.
90' ROUTE ONE
Newcastle are getting very desperate and they have taken to smashing the ball forward, but Sunderland's defence is standing firm.
89' GREAT SAVE
John O'Shea gets very lucky as he flicks a header backwards and over Keiren Westwood, but the keeper reacts well to dive back and onto the ball.
87' KRUL CLAIMS
Steven Fletcher hounds the Newcastle defence and very nearly forces them into a costly mistake, but Tim Krul is able to claim.
84' GGOOAAAALLL!
A stunning goal from Fabio Borini. Sunderland move the ball well and Sebastian Larsson finds Jozy Altidore, who drops the ball into the path of Fabio Borini and the Italian hits a swirling shot past Tim Krul.
81' TERRIBLE FREE KICK
Jozy Altidore does well to win a free kick just outside the box. Steven Fletcher steps up to take it and slams the ball into the wall.
78' JUST WIDE
Shola Ameobi has his head in his hands as he has just seen a fine shot sneak the wrong side of the post. You can hear Sunderland fans panic every time the substitute gets on the ball.
77' SUNDERLAND SUBSTITUTION
Gus Poyet makes his final substitution, bringing Ondrej Celustka on for the tired looking Phil Bardsley.
76' WIDE
More good play from Newcastle. Davide Santon sells Sebastian Larsson a dummy as he makes room for a shot, but the full back sends the ball wide of the post.
73' EASY SAVE
Yohan Cabaye tries another shot from long distance, but it is straight at Keiren Westwood.
71' SUNDERLAND SUBSTITUTION
Lee Cattermole is replaced by Sung-Yueng Ki.
70' NEWCASTLE SUBSTITUTION
Loic Remy makes way for Shola Ameobi, who is something of a talisman for Newcastle in these games.
69' SUNDERLAND SUBSTITUTION
Adam Johnson makes way for Fabio Borini.
67' SUNDERLAND STRUGGLING
The home side are being pinned back as Newcastle look a lot more spritely this half. Can the Black Cats hold on?
63' JUST WIDE
Hatem Ben Arfa draws some tackles before shifting the ball across to Yohan Cabaye, who hits a curling drive at goal. Keiren Westwood scrambles across to save and is relieved when the ball flies wide.
61' LARSSON!
A Sunderland corner is half cleared and it allows Sebastian Larsson some time, but he strikes his shot over the bar.
57' GGOOAAALL!!
And there is the equaliser. Hatem Ben Arfa hits a wayward shot along the floor but Mathieu Debuchy follows in and turns the ball into the net after Adam Johnson had failed to track the run.
56' COLBACK ANNOYED
Jack Colback gets straight in on Cheick Tiote and looks to have won the ball until the referee pulls play back. The young midfielder is not impressed by that decision.
53' SUNDERLAND PUSH
The home side are not sitting on their lead early in the second half. Jozy Altidore tries to bundle his way, but Paul Dummett tackles well. the ball seems to drop for Steven Fletcher, only for the shot to be blocked by more good defending.
49' POOR TOUCH
Papiss Cisse does well to head back to Yohan Cabaye, but the midfielder's first touch takes the ball out of play and Sunderland get a chance to attack.
46' SECOND HALF
Alan Pardew replaced Moussa Sissoko with Papiss Cisse at the break and the striker gets us under way in the second half.
45' SUNDERLAND IN SLIM LEAD
Sunderland started the game at a hundred miles an hour and got an early goal after Adam Johnson crossed for Steven Fletcher to head home. Newcastle looked shell shocked and struggled at first, but as the half wore on the away side started to force their opponents back. Yohan Cabaye has tried to pull the strings in midfield, but Sunderland look like a different side under Gus Poyet. Alan Pardew needs to have a rethink at the break as his side have not created a chance of note thus far.
45' HALF TIME
We have reached the break.
44' GREAT CATCH
Yohan Cabaye swings a cross into the box and Keiren Westwood comes a long way, but claims the ball well. Just what Sunderland needed.
41' ALTIDORE POOR
Sunderland's expensive summer signing Jozy Altidore has been working hard for his team this afternoon, but he is constantly found wanting when the ball gets near him. He has spent much of the game fouling Newcastle players and on this showing he is going to have to wait a while for his first Sunderland goal.
38' HOPEFUL
Newcastle have a free kick some 35 yards from goal, but that doesn't stop Hatem Ben Arfa stepping up and striking a shot at goal, but it never troubles Keiren Westwood.
35' POOR CROSS
Adam Johnson has a real chance to run at the Newcastle defence. Unfortunately, the winger's cross is terrible and the away side can clear their lines.
31' UP IN THE AIR
Newcastle push, but they only seem capable of lumping the ball into the box and it is giving Sunderland plenty of opportunities to clear.
28' POOR TACKLE
Jack Colback flicks the ball away from Yohan Cabaye and the Newcastle brings out a leg to fell him. Cabaye goes into the book.
26' NEWCASTLE IMPROVE
The away side have definitely improved in the last ten minutes and they are starting to create more. Davide Santon will feel aggrieved that his curling cross was not met by a Newcastle head.
22' GOOD CLAIM
Yohan Cabaye looks up and sees the run of Moussa Sissoko. The midfielder lofts a fine ball into Sissoko's path, but Keiren Westwood reacts quickly to claim and the keeper gets thumped in the process.
20' POOR FREE KICK
Yohan Cabaye has a chance to swing the ball in the box from a free kick, but he opts a low driven cross that is just too easy for the defenders.
16' SOLID SAVE (JUST)
Newcastle have a free kick and curl it round the wall. Keiren Westwood shuffles across but spills the ball and he has to quickly gather the rebound.
13' MAGPIES POOR
Newcastle look short of ideas in the opening exchanges. Hatem Ben Arfa tries to work his magic, but he then opts to hit a shot from a long way out and it loops well over the bar.
11' OVER THE BAR
Mathieu Debuchy carries the ball infield and lays the ball to Yohan Cabaye, who hits an unconvincing shot over the bar.
9' SUNDERLAND PRESSING
It has been an energetic performance so far from the home side as they look to pin Newcastle back in their own half. The tactic is working at the moment, but can Sunderland keep it up for 90 minutes?
5' GGOOAALL!!
A great start for Sunderland as they force a corner. Adam Johnson plays the ball short and gets the ball back. The winger hangs up a fine cross for Steven Fletcher to head home.
3' GREAT TACKLE
Moussa Sissoko tries to turn away and start an attack, but Lee Cattermole is straight in to win the ball.
1' KICK OFF
We are under way.
0' NEWCASTLE TEAM NEWS
The Magpies go with an attacking line up, which includes Yoan Gouffran, Hatem Ben Arfa and Loïc Rémy. In defence Paul Dummett retains his place after last week's goal.
0' SUNDERLAND TEAM NEWS
Andrea Dossena, who Liverpool fans will remember as a rather unconvincing left back, comes into the team. Jozy Altidore partners Steven Fletcher in attack and Sunderland could really do with those two hitting it off.
0' REF WATCH
Sunderland won't be too happy that referee Lee Probert is in charge of today's game as last time they met the official sent off John O'Shea as the Black Cats slumped to a defeat at fellow strigglers Crystal Palace.
0' NEWCASTLE LOOKING FOR REVENGE
Alan Pardew will be greatly relieved at his side's start to the season, but Newcastle are still failing to live up to their performances of two seasons' ago. After the thrashing the Magpies received from Sunderland last season, the away fans will be keen for revenge.
0' SUNDERLAND NEED TO KICK START SEASON
Gus Poyet has the thankless task of trying to get a season's worth of points together in 30 games and his side have to get something out of today's game. However, it will take a great deal of improvement over what they have so produced so far this season.
0' MORE THAN JUST A DERBY
Today's game means more to Sunderland than just a North-East derby as it represents a chance for the home side to finally get their season going. It was a win in this fixture that provided the Black Cats with the impetus to stay up last season, but Newcastle are a different proposition this season and shown by the battling draw they earned against Liverpool last week.
