Black Cats claw back point

Published Add your comment

Ten-man Sunderland came from two goals down at the Stadium of Light to snatch a deserved 2-2 draw and deny West Ham a first Barclays Premier League win since the opening day of the season.

Things looked bleak for the hosts when goals from Guillermo Franco - his first for the club - and the impressive Carlton Cole put the Hammers two up.

But Andy Reid's superb free-kick gave them hope and, after Kenwyne Jones had seen red in first-half stoppage time, Kieran Richardson tapped home a cross from the returning Darren Bent to equalise.

West Ham also finished the game a man light after Radoslav Kovac was sent off late on.
