Spurs fight back to beat Black Cats

Published Add your comment

Aaron Lennon kept Tottenham's Champions League challenge alive as his side came from behind to win 2-1 at Sunderland.

Spurs trailed at the break to John O'Shea's first goal for the Black Cats despite having enjoyed the better of a first half during which strike Emmanuel Adebayor hit the bar from just two yards.

However, Carlos Cuellar's own goal three minutes after the restart gave the visitors a foothold, and they took full advantage with 51 minutes gone when Lennon sped through to beat keeper Simon Mignolet.
