Newcastle United Vs Sunderland Highlights:The 1rst victory of Paolo Di Canio as the manager of Sunderland was celebrated with a 3-0 triumph against Newcastle United when they played at St. James Park. Sessegnon kicked things off with a goal in the 1rst half meanwhile Johnson and Vaughan also made their mark by scoring in the 2nd period of the encounter.
Howard Webb was the referee for this match and it was a fairly controversial game for him as he waved away a number of penalty and free-kick appeals for Sunderland.
The visitors still managed to score thanks to Sessegnon after a loose ball was picked up in the midfield which ended up with the 28 years old forward slamming the ball past Tim Krul scoring the only goal in the 1rst half.
Tim Krul would later be replaced by Rob Elliot but there was little the substitute goalkeeper could do to deny Johnson from scoring the 2nd goal in the 74th minute when he fired a superb curled effort past everyone else and into the goalkeeper’s net.
The Welsh international was at hand to score the 3rd and last goal of the match that Sunderland barely had much trouble in keeping Newcastle United at bay and their manager celebrating in his own way.
