Sunderland pay for missed chances

Roy Keane was left to rue missed chances as Newcastle hit back to extend Sunderland´s search for a derby win at home.

The Irishman saw his side take a deserved lead through Danny Higginbotham´s first goal for the club after passing up a series of earlier opportunities, and was off his seat as former Magpie Michael Chopra powered a header against the crossbar with eight minutes remaining.

However, by then James Milner had levelled when his 65th-minute cross crept inside Craig Gordon´s far post to punish the Wearsiders for their profligacy, and Keane said: "If we keep missing the chances we did, it is very hard to win any game. But I am pleased with the performance and the attitude of the players and the spirit with which they played."
