FULL-TIME Sunderland 1-1 Middlesbrough

Sunderland striker Frazier Campbell: “I can’t put into words what it has been like. It’s been a very tough 18 months but moments like this one are what you wait for. I’m really looking forward to the replay and hopefully I can stay injury-free now.”

Middlesbrough manager Tony Mowbray after his side’s 1-1 draw with Sunderland: “Particularly in the second half a few things fell for us and with a break or a ricochet we would have got a goal. We’ve been better on the road than we have at home this season.”

Sunderland manager Martin O’Neill after his side’s 1-1 draw with Middlesbrough: “The goal from Fraizer gave us a big, big lift and we thought we could win it from that point but that would have been harsh on Middlesbrough. Overall I’m delighted with the team but we need to play for 90 minutes.”

Former Sunderland defender Michael Gray for BBC Radio 5 live at the Stadium of Light: “I thought it was a terrific match. A fantastic goal by Barry Robson to open the scoring before he then made the mistake for the equaliser [by Fraizer Campbell]. Both sides were really going for it, there was a great atmosphere and hopefully it will be the same in the replay.”

GOAL Sunderland 0-1 Middlesbrough (Robson)
Middlesbrough goal: It is something against the run of play so far but there is no arguing with the quality of Barry Robson’s strike. Nothing wrong with John O’Shea’s header clear from Faris Haroun’s cross, but the Scot, running across goal to reach the dropping ball, lashes a superb volley low into the bottom corner from the edge of the box.

GOAL Sunderland 1-1 Middlesbrough (Campbell)
Sunderland goal: It is a sweeping move topped off by a fairytale comeback goal for Fraizer Campbell. From a Middlesbrough corner, Sunderland break upfield, Barry Robson has a chance to nip the attack in the bud but misplaces his pass and James McClean plays in Campbell whose finish is hard and low past Danny Coyne. It is his first goal since April 2010.
