Sun­der­land share spoils

The Sunday Telegraph - Sport - - Football -

Sun­der­land and Lu­ton both fin­ished with 10 men as the two League One pro­mo­tion hope­fuls bat­tled to a 1-1 draw at the Sta­dium of Light. Vic­tory for Sun­der­land would have seen them leapfrog their op­po­nents into sec­ond place in the ta­ble. They made the per­fect start when Chris Maguire scored af­ter 16 min­utes. Lu­ton, who lost their man­ager, Nathan Jones, this week, lev­elled in the 67th minute through James Collins’ penalty but then had Danny Hyl­ton sent off for an ae­rial chal­lenge. Sun­der­land failed to make the nu­mer­i­cal ad­van­tage count be­fore Maguire re­ceived a red card for an al­leged stamp in in­jury-time.

Portsmouth’s lead at the top of the ta­ble was trimmed to just four points, as they lost 1-0 to Black­pool.
