Pic Special: Sunderland v Newcastle

Asamoah Gyan's last minute goal saved Sunderland from a humiliating double defeat at the hands of Newcastle, but four points from the two Tyne-Wear games this season still represents a great return - particularly with October's 5-1 win at St. James' still fresh in the memory.

Kevin Nolan was the hat-trick hero that day, and he was on target again at the Stadium of Light. That goal looked like being enough until Gyan's late, late intervention.

Right in the thick of the celebrations following the opener was club photographer Ian Horrocks, who also captured a whole lot more besides.
