Blackburn Rovers’ title hopes took a hit as they failed to beat Wimbledon at Selhurst Park.
Rovers took an early lead through Jason Wilcox who finished from Tim Sherwood’s pass.
John Fashanu struck a deserved equaliser for Wimbledon shortly into the second half, and an own goal by Henning Berg after a long throw into the area put them in front.
Further goals from Dean Holdsworth and Robbie Earle wrapped up the three points for Joe Kinnear’s side.
The result left Blackburn in second, six points behind leaders Manchester United. Wimbledon moved up to 10th with 48 points.
Sunderland handed themselves a Premier League lifeline thanks to Andy Reid’s dramatic late winner at the Stadium of Light.
Reid crashed an unstoppable shot into the bottom corner deep into stoppage time as the Black Cats secured a comeback victory against West Ham United.
The Hammers went in front on 18 minutes when Freddie Ljungberg finished from Carlton Cole’s knock down, but Sunderland were level soon after when Kenwyne Jones tapped in.
Reid’s late strike lifted the hosts seven points clear of the bottom three and into 14th.
West Ham remained 10th on 44 points.
