Sunderland 2-0 West Brom – Black Cats Secure Top-Tier Status After Win Against Baggies (Photos & Highlights)

Sunderland 2-0 West Bromwich Albion – Premier League – 7th May 2014

19759859

It’s not always been plain sailing for Sunderland boss Gus Poyet this season, but on Wednesday night the Uruguayan saw his side secure their Premier League survival courtesy of a 2-0 home win against West Brom.

Jack Colback opened the scoring on 13 minutes before revitalised striker Fabio Borini┬ámade it 2-0 on the half-hour mark in a game which saw the visitors struggle to create much of a goal threat. However, for Pepe Mel’s side, the defeat still sees them secure their own top-tier status and effectively relegate Norwich instead courtesy of the Canaries’ massively inferior goal difference.

Considering Sunderland were bottom at Christmas, Poyet has done a fine job what with getting his side to Wembley in the Capital One Cup final and now keeping his in the Premier League. One wonders what Paulo Di Canio is thinking right now.

    As a Palace fan i have to say well done to Sunderland. I thought they were well done for for sure.

  2. Peter says:

    Surely Sunderland deserve more than a “well done” in the results section of the blog. What Gus has done has been incredible, I was hoping for a full post on Sunderlands change in form.
