BLACKCATS HOLD OUT FOR DRAW
SUNDERLAND 0 BURNLEY 0
PREMIER League rivals Sunderland and Burnley played out a goalless draw at the Stadium of Light.
Sean Dyche’s men nearly took the lead after 15 minutes through Sam Vokes, but Vito Mannone saved well after the Welshmen was played in by Scott Arfield.
Sunderland’s best chance came through Jack Rodwell, who forced Nick Pope into a smart save ten minutes into the second half when he fired goalwards from the edge of the box.
James Tarkowski nearly won it for the Clarets 15 minutes from time, but his powerful header from Steven Defour’s corner cannoned off the post. Burnley pressed for a winner, but could not breach the Black Cats.
