Demba Ba's own goal denied 10-man Newcastle a derby victory at Sunderland as a dramatic encounter on Wearside ended 1-1.

The Senegal striker could only look on in horror as John O'Shea's 85th-minute header hit him and sailed past helpless keeper Tim Krul to cancel out Yohan Cabaye's opener.

It was little more than the Black Cats deserved after belatedly making the most of Cheick Tiote's 25th-minute dismissal for a studs-up challenge on Steven Fletcher.
