Sunderland 2-2 West Ham Utd


Filed: Saturday, 15th April 2017
By: Staff Writer


They may be two of the Premier League's poorest sides based on recent form, but at least Sunderland and West Ham managed to produce a reasonably-entertaining affair at the Stadium of Light.

However it will be the home side who leave the happier of the two, having secured a point thanks to Fabio Borini's 90th-minute equaliser.




West Ham, who are probably still one win away from securing Premier League safety following a dreadful recent run thought they'd done enough to secure all three points after Andre Ayew's first half effort was complemented by James Collins' first goal since the opening day of the season.

However Khazri's equaliser - direct from a corner, with 'keeper Darren Randolph in no man's land - cancelled out Ayew's fifth minute opener, before Borini secured a point for the league's bottom side, who remain nine points adrift of safety with just six games left to play.




The point takes West Ham above Burnley - who were beaten at Everton this afternoon -
into 13th place in the table. We'll have a full match report for you soon...
