In the end, you have to say that a point is better than nothing, and playing with only 10 men for most of the game, Blunderland fans must have feared the worst. But is one point enough?
Sunderland now face two difficult games and, without a striker or creative midfielder worthy of the name, they could well end up losing both. At best, I expect them to pick up one point, which will leave them dependent on the results of others to stay up.
Wigan's game at home to Swansea is now critical. If they win that one, Newcastle and Sunderland will be in deep, deep shit!
