DUNCAN WATMORE'S stoppage-time equaliser secured Sunderland a 1-1 draw at Wycombe Wanderers and maintained their record of having scored in every League One game this season.

Wycombe started much the brighter, and should have claimed the lead in the 17th minute. Nathan Tyson picked out the unmarked Luke Bolton as he crossed from the left, but the Wycombe midfielder somehow sliced wide.

Aiden McGeady dragged a long-range effort wide as Sunderland briefly threatened, but Wycombe continued to dominate and deservedly claimed the lead ten minutes before the break.

Dominic Gape caught Lewis Morgan loitering in possession, and his through ball enabled Paris Cowan-Hall to square for Alex Samuel to slot home.

Sunderland improved in the second half, with Tom Flanagan heading Grant Leadbitter’s free-kick against the crossbar.

And the visitors claimed a dramatic equaliser in the second minute of stoppage time. Ryan Allsop was unable to hold Leadbitter’s long-range shot, and Watmore pounced to slam home the rebound.

A late brawl that involved the two benches resulted in Tyson and George Honeyman - who had both already been substituted - receiving red cards, and Marcus Bean was sent off deep into stoppage time as he received a second yellow card for a foul on Lee Cattermole.

That meant Wycombe finished the game with ten men on the pitch, and Sunderland ended the afternoon with nine players on the field after Flanagan and Watmore both picked up late injuries.
