  • Campbell narrowly fails to convert at the far post. best chance of the second-half so far.

    12/28/2013 6:39:13 PM
    Good start to the second half for Cardiff, with Campbell just failing to get on the end of Whittingham's corner. He could have scored himself moments earlier though, as he tried to cross with no team-mates in the area when he should have shot instead.
    12/28/2013 6:40:14 PM
  • [goal] GOAL! CARDIFF 2-0 SUNDERLAND (Campbell)
    Campbell gets between two defenders to convert Mutch's ball from the edge of the area with Sunderland struggling to stay in the contest.

    12/28/2013 6:48:04 PM
    [yellow-card]One booking for each side. Kim is cautioned for kicking the ball into the crowd as he celebrates the goal. Bardsley plays it old skool, clipping Campbell's heels as he pushes on towards the penalty area.

    12/28/2013 6:48:55 PM
    [sunderland]CHANCE! Skipper Cattermole almost drags his side back into contention but his hooked shot just clears the frame of the goal.
    12/28/2013 6:51:26 PM
    [sunderland]More worrying news for Sunderland concerning Fabio Borini. The Italian came off at half-time due to illness and he has since collapsed with an ambulance being called for him.
    12/28/2013 6:54:32 PM
    [yellow-card]Campbell finds his way into the ref's notebook for leaving his boot in on Bardsley as the defender cleared the ball.
    12/28/2013 6:56:19 PM
    West Brom's Nicolas Anelka could be in hot water for making a gesture when celebrating his first goal against West Ham today. He apparently did the 'quenelle' after scoring, a symbol associated with a French comedian who could be banned by the French government for anti-semetic behaviour. Click here for more on this story He has just Tweeted his own defence, saying: 

    12/28/2013 6:57:42 PM
  • And here is the gesture in question...

    12/28/2013 6:58:31 PM

    12/28/2013 7:02:00 PM
    [cardiff]Turner gets the better of Diakite but can only head Whittingham's corner over the bar.
    12/28/2013 7:02:18 PM
    [substitution]Changes for both sides again, with Gunnarsson and Cornelius on in place of Kim and Campbell for Cardiff. Colback and Gardner replace Cattermole and Larsson for Sunderland.
    12/28/2013 7:09:23 PM

    12/28/2013 7:09:23 PM
  • [goal]GOAL! CARDIFF 2-1 SUNDERLAND (Fletcher)
    Good work from Giaccherini who works the ball onto his right foot and crosses for sub Fletcher to stretch and convert. GAME ON!
    12/28/2013 7:11:48 PM
  • The art of losing his man is what created the opportunity for Steven Fletcher. Now can Sunderland dare to believe? [niallquinn]

    12/28/2013 7:11:58 PM
  • Fletcher arrives at the far post to score. It's game on at the Cardiff City Stadium!

    12/28/2013 7:12:20 PM
    Quick update on Borini. The Sunderland player is conscious but is on a drip and has been taken to hospital. More details of course as and when we get them.
    12/28/2013 7:13:24 PM
    NEARLY! Colback almost draws Sunderland level but he drags his shot just past the post. Fletcher then shoots straight at Marshall in the next attack as he struggles to maintain his balance.
    12/28/2013 7:16:18 PM
    Five added minutes to play. All hands to the pump for Cardiff!
    12/28/2013 7:18:20 PM
  • Cardiff's backs are to the wall. Sunderland are pressing. These are big moments for these clubs. Perhaps the most important of the season so far. [niallquinn]

    12/28/2013 7:18:33 PM
    [save]Another great chance but Marshall stands firm to block Roberge's shot. Cardiff then break but Cornelius is crowded out in the box.
    12/28/2013 7:20:30 PM
    Mayhem in the Cardiff defence but they survive as Giaccherini curls a shot past the post.
    12/28/2013 7:22:23 PM
  • [goal] GOAL! CARDIFF 2-2 SUNDERLAND (Colback)
    SENSATIONAL STUFF! Colback's shot takes a huge deflection and Sunderland are back on level terms. WHAT DRAMA!!!

  • Colback strikes - and scores in the most dramatic of circumstances!

    12/28/2013 7:24:23 PM
    [full-time]THAT'S IT!
    12/28/2013 7:24:26 PM
  • Sunderland's players are jubilant. This will feel like a win. They were dead and buried with seven minutes left.

    12/28/2013 7:24:31 PM
  • She's not happy. If ever a game summed up a week for a football club...

    12/28/2013 7:27:23 PM
  • And this is what it means. Sunderland fail to lift themselves out of the bottom three, but a valuable point keeps them in the survival hunt and keeps Cardiff very much in the mix.

    12/28/2013 7:27:55 PM
    Cardiff owner Vincent Tan can be seen booing at the end of the game. Whether that is directed at the players or the fans, it is not entirely clear.
    12/28/2013 7:29:21 PM
  • Is the owner booing his own team here????

    12/28/2013 7:35:21 PM
  • It was an incredible day. we started poorly...but we never stop fighting and put Cardiff on the backfoot. You cannot offer any presents to the opposition, even at Christmas.
    Sunderland manager Gus Poyet after his side came from two-down to draw 2-2 at Cardiff.
    12/28/2013 7:38:19 PM
  • RAY WILKINS' VERDICT [raywilkins]
    Cardiff will be very saddened by the way they have let them back in the game because they were in total command. This is why this is the best game on the planet and the best league on the planet as well – because this can happen in the Premier League. In other leagues in the world it doesn’t happen, but we have excitement right the way through to the end.

    12/28/2013 7:40:36 PM
  • He is in hospital. Fabio was sick before the game and at half-time it became impossible for him (to carry on). We took him to hospital, so let's hope it's nothing and he can go back on the plane to the north.
    Poyet gives a positive update on Fabio Borini, who was forced to come off at half-time feeling unwell.
    12/28/2013 7:43:01 PM
  • Here are the match stats from that extraordinary game at the Cardiff City Stadium

    12/28/2013 7:43:55 PM
  • Everyone's a bit down but it's a good point and we move on to the next game. I'm happy with the goal but disappointed with the result. We go out every week to play well and get three points and this week is no different.
    Cardiff's opening goalscorer Jordon Mutch gives his reaction to the 2-2 draw and suggestions the players had a point to prove after Malky Mackay was sacked.
