Three second-half goals saw Sunderland claim a 3-1 victory over 10-man Fulham as the Black Cats picked up their first Barclays Premier League win in seven attempts.

A red card for Fulham captain Brede Hangeland for a rash challenge on Lee Cattermole was the only action of a nervy yet well-contested first half.

A 50th-minute goal from Steven Fletcher, the striker's first since the 1-0 win at Wigan in September, opened the scoring before substitute Mladen Petric levelled for the hosts.
