Match Summary Spence’s slip lets in Shackleton, then Broadis nets Reynolds’ cross from point blank as Sunderland rally. Earlier Froggatt’s deflected cross fell kindly for Clarke, then Swede Ekner – over here on business – set up Harris. Reynolds’ cut head meant he had to go off despite his protests.
