Sam Allardyce took charge of his first Sunderland home game today in the Tyne and Wear derby against his former club Newcastle United at the Stadium of Light.
It’s been a topsy turvy game so far, as it looked like the teams would reach half time at a stalemate, Sunderland won a penalty which Adam Johnson duly dispatched in the 3rd minute of first half stoppage time, sending the Sunderland fans into delirium!
Steve McClaren will be looking for a huge response from his Newcastle United players for the 2nd half! Can Big Sam hold out for the victory, or will there be another twist to the tale? We will let you know!
