El-Hadji Diouf salvaged a 2-2 draw for Blackburn at Ewood Park after Darren Bent's cool double looked set to send Sunderland on their way to a rare win.

Bent opened the scoring for the visitors in the 52nd minute only for Morten Gamst Pedersen to reply almost immediately with a drilled shot in off the post.

Bent restored Sunderland's lead on 65 before Diouf's header 13 minutes from time. Marton Fulop saved brilliantly to deny Nikola Kalinic at the death.
