Kieran Richardson ended Sunderland's 28-year wait for a home win over Newcastle with a stunning free-kick as the Black Cats beat their fierce local rivals 2-1.

Shola Ameobi had earlier cancelled out Djibril Cisse's opener before the break, and wasted a glorious opportunity to put the visitors ahead 13 minutes after half-time.
