Black Cats up to fourth in Division 1 thanks to away win at Southampton

Sunderland moved up to fourth in Premier League 2 Division 1 with a 2-0 victory against Southampton at Staplewood.

Nothing separated the two sides in the first half, but Joel Asoro found the net following Elliot Embleton’s pass five minutes after the break, before Josh Maja capitalised as Saints goalkeeper Harry Lewis spilled Asoro’s centre seven minutes later.

Southampton’s Richard Bakary and Sunderland’s George Honeyman were sent off following a altercation late on, but the visitors held on and move four points ahead of Saints in seventh.

Saints’ next PL2 match is a visit to Reading on Monday January 9 2017, while Sunderland take on league leaders Everton the day before.
