The Wear Tyne derby ended as a score draw that should have maybe finished 3-1 to Sunderland.
Sunderland totally dominated the play and will be rueing missed chances after James Milners cross come shot gifted the Mags with a share of the points.
Chopra`s should have scored in the first half after he turned on the edge of the area before unleashing shot across the face of goal which after Harper did well to save.
Jones had a good chance in the second half when he got on the end of Wallace`s cross only for his header to be denied by Harper.
Danny Higginbotham scored Sunderland`s goal. Jones took a short corner to Leadbitter. Danny was on hand to head home a Leadbitter`s cross at the back post.
Milner scores a lucky goal when his cross come shot sneaks on at the far post.
Chopra then managed to hit the bar with his shot from close range after a good corner from Harte.
Sunderland are unlucky again and it is more like two points dropped than one point gained.
Sunderland Line Up 4-4-2
