Sunderland mounted a stirring fight-back from 2-0 down to avoid embarrassment in their FA Cup clash with Bolton, securing a 2-2 draw at the Reebok Stadium.

But the introduction of striker Connor Wickham swung the tie back towards the Premier League outfit as he levelled on the hour mark before Craig Gardner drilled home a superb equaliser from outside the box with 15 minutes to go.
