  1. Sunderland move three points clear of the relegation zone with this vital away victory. But not for the first time this season, an entertaining game's major talking point will revolve around a major decision made by the referee. The red card shown to Fulham defender Brede Hangeland had a huge bearing on the outcome and he can count himself unfortunate to be penalised so harshly.

  2. 90+4

    Late Fulham corner but Riise's kick is headed clear before a shot from Hughes is saved by the excellent Simon Mignolet.

  3. 90+3

    Sidwell's shot is blocked on the edge of the box.

  4. 90

    The board goes up and we will have a minimum of four minutes added time.

  5. 89

    Sunderland win the ball back and knock the ball around in their own half, there will be some tired Fulham bodies now.

  6. 88

    McClean breaks and shoots low from 25 yards, but it's an easy save for Schwarzer.

  7. 87

    Berbatov gives the ball away with Fulham in a decent position - Sunderland have 10 men behind the ball.

  8. 86

    A strong run by McClean takes him into the corner but Vaughan gives it away and Sunderland must defend.

  9. 85

    Sunderland again keep the ball deep in Fulham territory , when Johnson could easily have put in a cross.

  10. 84

    Cattermole is booked for a late challenge on Riise, which brought a very angry response from the normally placid Berbatov.

  11. 83

    Sunderland are still looking nervous despite being two goals and a player to the good.

  12. 82

    Johnson's intended cross for Fletcher is too deep and Riise collects before hammering the ball downfield.

  13. 81

    Sunderland are looking to keep possession and run the clock down.

  14. 80

    Great work by Petric sees him nutmeg Cuellar, but his shot is parried by the keeper.

  15. 79

    Still this excellent game is flowing end to end.

  16. 78

    Rodallega tries his luck from distance but it's well off target.

  17. 77

    David Vaughan has replaced Jack Colback who has been struggling with illness.

  18. 76

    McClean lets fly from 25 yards but his shot is always going away from goal.

  19. 74

    It almost goes Sunderland's way as Fletcher slides in at the far post to convert Johnson's low cross, but he is given offside.

  20. 73

    No signs that Fulham have given this game up and I'm sure there's at least another goal in the game.
