Black Cats strike back for Stoke point

John O'Shea snatched a potentially priceless point for Sunderland as they held Stoke to a 1-1 draw despite seeing Craig Gardner sent off after only 34 minutes.

Defeat at the Stadium of Light would have left the Black Cats in a perilous situation just above the relegation zone but, having gone behind to Jonathan Walters' early effort, they showed great heart in the second half and deserved to see O'Shea prod home a 63rd-minute corner.

Gardner can take little credit for the result, though, and his red card for a dangerous challenge on Charlie Adam was fully warranted.
