Sunderland 4-0 Bolton, Premier League
At last! With this spanking of Bolton, Sunderland claimed their first three points of the new year and ended a run of 14 games without a victory. Darren Bent scored a hat-trick, after Fraizer Campbell had scored the quickest Prem goal of the season (41 seconds in), and Steve Bruce let out a rather large sigh of relief.
Sunderland move above Bolton into 13th, but still only six points above the relegation zone. Both teams have work to do before they reach safety, but I can’t see either going down – there are too many shit teams below them for that.
