Pic Special: Newcastle Res 2 Sunderland Res 2

Both sides led but ultimately honours were even in the Tyne-Wear derby between Newcastle and Sunderland's under-21 teams in a thrilling game at the Sports Direct Arena.

Connor Wickham put the Black Cats in front before Bradden Inman and Adam Campbell gave United the advantage at half-time. But Wickham's second goal of the night meant it finished 2-2.

Shane Ferguson, Dan Gosling and Sammy Ameobi all played 90 minutes for the Magpies although there was bad news for young Michael Richardson, who was stretchered off with an ankle injury. The visitors meanwhile included the likes of David Vaughan, Dong Won Ji, Matthew Kilgallon and ex-Toon striker Louis Saha.

Another big name present was Club Photographer Ian Horrocks who brought nufc.co.uk this exclusive picture gallery.
