Sunderland blasted out of the bottom three and up to 12th place in the league after beating the Mags 3-0 on their own patch.

And that made it three glorious victories on the trot over the old enemy, showing once and for all just who is boss on derby day.

Fabio Borini was on the mark for Sunderland with the first goal of the afternoon when he fired home from the spot after Anita had fouled Phil Bardsley in the box.

Adam Johnson then made it worse for the home side when a shot from Jack Colback was deflected to him at the far post and he had an easy job to make it 2-0.

Then, after Newcastle had managed to show that they could play a bit, Colback added a third on the break and the Newcastle fans started to flood out of the ground.

Newcastle looked a poor side and they were made even weaker with the disappearance of Cabaye to France and the home fans were clearly upset at half time when they booed their heroes off the field.

When they did have the ball and wanted to come forward, they were slow and sluggish posing not much of a threat for the Black Cats who by comparison were well up for this one and looked lively.

They were looking sharp when Phil Dowd pointed to the penalty spot after Anita ran across Bardsley and failed to get the ball; Borini placed the ball on the spot and smashed the ball to Krul's right.

Not long after that it was 2-0 to the Black Cats when they made a good move down the left, Jozy Altidore flicked the ball to Colback who managed to get in a shot, but his effort came off Taylor and the ball headed towards the far post where Johnson swept the ball home.

After a round of boos from the crowd and no doubt a rollicking from the boss, Newcastle were a different side from the one that trudged off at half time, but for all their huff and puff, they could not find a way of scoring.

Unlike Sunderland, who after Johnson had hit the inside of the post and Krul acting quickly to stop Altidore, Colback stopped Newcastle on the half way line and a few seconds later picked it up again in the penalty area, he fired home.

The Newcastle fans then obviously had a fire drill to act upon and they disappeared, leaving Sunderland and their fans to celebrate yet another win over the Mags.

I especially enjoyed the boo's at half time, they could have been even better at full time but there were no Mag fans left in the

@GaryLineker Sunderland have come such a long way in a relatively short space of time under Gus Poyet. He's doing an extraordinary job.
