Sunderland battle back for win

Kenwynne Jones of Sunderland celebrates

Sunderland came close to giving away two points in their Premier League match against Wolverhampton.

Sunderland won the game 5-2, but at one point it looked like they'd thrown away the win by conceding two silly goals.

Wolves let in two goals early on, but shortly into the second half John Mensah knocked in an own goal. Kevin Doyle then levelled the score 2-2.

But Kenwyne Jones, Michael Turner and Darren Bent's late goals gave Sunderland a big win.

Sunderland might have won the game, but manager Steve Bruce will be asking serious questions about the quality of his defence.

With an own goal and many more bad mistakes, they've got a lot of improving to do.
