1-1 draw. Sunderland Vs Tottenham

An 89th minute equaliser robbed Black Cats of 2 points. An equal share of the spoils as Tottenham secured a 1-1 draw at the Stadium of Light. Sbragia was rightly dissapointed with the points dropped and blamed the outcome a result of his player's ill discipline.

Sbragia said: "Eighty-nine minutes, we were 1-0 up and it was the same old story. We got carried away and we start losing our discipline. We should take a short corner kick and try to see out a little bit of time or try to work it a little bit better.

"The left-back [McCartney] is in the box for some reason - I don't know why he is there, but he's there, and that's where the goal has come from, at the end of the day. I can't understand that."

Richardson was booked for the 10th time this season and will miss 2 games.

"Kieran was running around like a chicken with no head trying to get himself booked for some reason, and we became undisciplined.

"He continued getting involved with the referee, he continued trying to make silly tackles and picked up his 10th booking, so that didn't please me.

"And definitely without any doubt, the late goal didn't please me."
