Nugent grabs brace to defeat Black Cats

Published Add your comment

Loan star David Nugent made a dramatic start to his Burnley career with two late goals to sink Sunderland 3-1 and keep his side's proud 100% home record intact.

Deadline day signing Nugent rose to head home Wade Elliott's 67th-minute free-kick nine minutes after replacing Martin Paterson - then struck again in the 86th minute to seal the points.

Graham Alexander's 12th-minute penalty had put the home side in front before Andy Reid's cross set up Darren Bent to slot home the equaliser six minutes before half-time.
