Newcastle United and Sunderland played out a 1-1 draw at St. James’ Park in the Premier League on Sunday afternoon.
Jermain Defoe put the Black Cats in the lead on the stroke of half time, but Aleksandar Mitrovic equalised for the home team on 83 minutes.
Great result in the Tyne-Wear derby....for Norwich.— Gary Lineker (@GaryLineker) March 20, 2016
Sunderland and Newcastle remain in the Premier League relegation zone with 26 and 25 points respectively.
Norwich are 17th in the standings at the moment with 28 points, but they have played a game more.
However, there is no guarantee that Sunderland or Newcastle will win their game in hand, and the draw at St. James’ Park on Sunday afternoon certainly helps the Canaries.
