Sunderland endured yet another afternoon to forget at the weekend, as the Championship strugglers lost 2-0 at home to Preston.
The Black Cats, who now find themselves bottom of the second-tier and heading for a second straight relegation, had defender Jake Clarke-Salter, just back from a ban for a red card, sent off again for a second bookable offence.
Things got even worse for the home fans at half-time, with a random man in a rival Newcastle United shirt (unofficially) winning a crossbar challenge and celebrating in classic Alan Shearer style, before evading an unimpressed steward with a cheeky nutmeg…

Poor old Sunderland. When it rains (or snows), it pours.
