Referee:

The away game against Birmingham was nail biter to the very finish.

Stern John scored a last minute Equaliser to send the travelling fans home happy.

The first goal of the game was a Sunderland own goal by Paul McShane the defender got in the way of Kelly`s wayward header only for it to beat Gordon.

Sunderland then should have had a Penalty. Connolly was hauled down by Djourou (are you blind ref).

Sunderland replied in the second half with goal from Michael Chopra. Etuhu`s header forward was meet by Chopra on the half volley in spectacular fashion. His left foot shot flew in.

Birmingham managed to get themselves back in front with a great finish from the substitute O`Connor. It was their only real chance of he game.

Sunderland then should have levelled when Edwards made a great run and crossed to John only for him to hit the cross bar.

Sunderland then got the goal they deserved. Down to ten men with Edwards going off with a hamstring injury. Stern John levelled when Wallace`s free kick was saved only for John to tuck away the loose ball.

Match Comment

A good result for us, I expected it to be tight but I am pleased we at least came away with a point. Birmingham seemed to score from their one and only chance and were lucky with their first goal.

It a shame that Edwards looks to have a hamstring injury he could be out for around 6 weeks.

We signed Chops from Cardiff for 5 million last month. Your right It was one hell of a goal.

I think there's something Sunderland fans ought to know. I was sitting infront a few of the Sunderland fans there must have been 4-5 and throughout the match all I could here was Yorke slagging off Keane. Obviously many Birmingham fans heard what he was muttering and that started the song of Keane being a b*stard. Also since when the hell did football get invented on Wearside? You were singing some strange songs!

Also the ref was awful almost as bad as this reporter. It was'nt even a penalty and clearly you're the blind one as Djoura was'nt even in the box you *****.

Your right Simone the ref was awful it should have been a penalty. Sunderland should have won the game easily 4-1. Birmingham's first goal was lucky, John hit the bar and Connolly was denied a pen, Chops scored to class goal and John made sure we at least got a point. Oh and What have Birmingham and a pencil got in common ? They have only got 1 point.

The ref must have been blind. A great fight back even if the ref was all for them.
