Sunderland continued their fine run of recent form with a good win over in form Birmingham City at the Stadium of Light. Darren Bent once again staked his claim for a place in the England World Cup squad with his fourth and fifth goal in three games in quick succession putting the home side two goals to the good inside ten minutes.
Cameron Jerome put the St Andrews’ side back in the match with a strike on the hour mark but Frazier Campbell scored a late goal to restore the Black Cats two goal lead.
