Darren Bent continued his rich vein of goalscoring form as Sunderland won 2-1 and edged Burnley ever closer to relegation from the Barclays Premier League.

The England striker claimed his 24th goal of the season four minutes before the break to ensure the visitors did not collect a second successive away win.

Fraizer Campbell had put the Black Cats ahead with 25 minutes gone as the home side dominated until substitute Steve Thompson's strike eight minutes from time sparked a late flurry.
