Premier League: Newcastle 5-1 Sunderland

Monday, November 1, 2010

A Kevin Nolan hat-trick helped Newcastle United thrash Sunderland 5-1 at St James' Park for the biggest win over their North-East rivals for 54 years.

The initial damage was done in the first half thanks to Nolan's brace inside 32 minutes and a Shola Ameobi penalty on the stroke of the interval after Jonás Gutiérrez had been brought down by Nedum Onuoha.

The Black Cats' hopes of mounting a comeback were then effectively extinguished when former Newcastle player Titus Bramble was sent off in the 53rd minute for a professional foul on Andy Carroll.

Ameobi smashed in a volley on 70 minutes before Nolan completed his treble with the simplest of headed finishes, while Darren Bent netted a consolation for Sunderland right at the death.
