Fabio Borini scored one goal and assisted another to guide Sunderland to a crucial 0-3 win over Norwich City.
A massive day for the Black Cats who, with the win, climb to within a point of Norwich to escape relegation, with a game in hand and a healthy goal difference on the Canaries. It looked anyone's game in the first half but Sunderland made the most of things despite losing the possession battle. Borini was fouled in the box in the 41st minute and converted the penalty himself to score what proved to be the match-winner. Sunderland doubled their lead when they pounced quickly on a dispossessed Seb Bassong and Borini whipped in a fine cross to Jermain Defoe who finished from point blank range. They withstood pressure from Norwich, thanks mainly to fine goalkeeping from Vito Mannone. Duncan Watmore was fed the ball by Seb Larsson at the end of the match to score the final goal of the day.
