The Black Cats come back from behind to convincingly beat 10-man QPR.
It was a poor start to the game from Sunderland, and QPR took advantage after just 12 minutes, thanks to a brilliant strike by Kenneth Paal from 20-yards-out.
Less than 10 minutes later, former Sunderland and Newcastle midfielder, Jack Colback, was sent off after a horrible challenge on Jobe in the middle of the park.
Jobe looked to have equalised after just 5 minutes, but he was caught offside after Pritchard’s cross.
Jack Clarke did equal the score just before half-time, as his long range effort deflected off of Steve Cook and found the bottom corner, a massive boost before the break.
Sunderland then went on to dominate proceedings in the second half, and it it didn’t take long for them to go infront after half-time.
57 minutes in, following a corner, Pritchard played a brilliant 1-2 on the edge of the box, but his shot was weak and it fell to Dan Ballard, who couldn’t miss.
Adil Aouchiche came on for his debut, and he did brilliantly well to set up Sunderland’s third goal.
he drove to the bi-line and put in a delightful ball towards Abdoullah Ba, and Ba finished into the roof of the net first time, and Sunderland were 1-3 up with 9 minutes remaining.
Just before the end of the game, Hemir almost got his first goal for the club, as his close range header was well saved by Begovic in goal.
Sunderland have now moved up to 7th in the league, whereas QPR have dropped down to 19th.
MOTM – Abdoullah Ba
