Sunderland 2-2 Aston Villa

Sunderland 2-2 Aston Villa

STEPHANE SESSEGNON struck late to secure a point for battling Sunderland.

The Black Cats twice fell behind to Alex McLeish's Villa who scored through Stiylian Petrov and Richard Dunne. Connor Wickham grabbed Sunderland's first before Sessesgnon levelled.


Unsurprisingly Steve Bruce named the same side that beat Bolton last weekend whilst Villa included Alan Hutton who had been a doubt.
