SUNDERLAND COMPLETED THEIR great escape from what had seemed certain relegation when a 2-0 win at home to West Bromwich Albion tonight ensured they’d be playing Premier League football next season.

First-half Goals from Jack Colback and Fabio Borini saw Sunderland to their fourth successive win, a result that took the north-east side five points clear of the relegation zone ahead of Sunday’s final round of matches.

Victory for Gus Poyet’s men all but relegated Norwich, who have only a slim mathematical chance of not joining already-down Cardiff and Fulham in the second-tier Championship next season.
