SUN
STK
90'+4
And that's full-time. Stoke will be disappointed that their efforts with ten men reaped no reward, but a great display from Vito Mannone was the primary reason that they leave the Stadium of Light with nothing, while Sunderland - for the time being, at least - move out of the relegation zone. Thank you for joining me tonight - see you next time.
90'+4
And Colback tries to round it off by lobbing Begovic, who gets it over the bar.
90'+4
Mannone makes a final decisive save, going through O'Shea to claim a cross.
90'+2
Shawcross flicks on to Guidetti, who can't get there.
Stoke City Substitution
90'
 
Stoke make their final change too, with Guidetti replacing Odemwingie.
90'
Four minutes of added time here.
90'
Arnautovic turns and fires in low from the left, and Brown deflects it out for a corner. That could easily have been an own goal.
89'
Can Sunderland hang on for their first home win in five Premier League matches?
88'
So that's Sunderland's last substitution of the evening as we move into the closing minutes.
Sunderland Substitution
87'
 
Johnson gets a well-deserved round of applause as he leaves the field to be replaced by Craig Gardner.
86'
The resultant corner flies in and flicks over the top of Brown's head.
86'
Ki plays Borini in to the box, and Wilson deflects it out.
85'
Colback tries to calm things down, pushing forward slowly, and playing it out to Borini.
83'
A looping header from Shawcross strikes the top of the bar!
81'
Odemwingie has moved further forward and his presence has got Sunderland rattled.
80'
Stoke are still searchng for that equaliser, and Sunderland are starting to look a little panicky.
78'
 
Borini's the next one in the book, for a foul on Cameron.
78'
Into the wall from Adam and Mannone stops him from taking advantage of the rebound.
77'
And a foul by Colback on the edge of the box gives Stoke a free-kick.
77'
A searching ball forward towards Fletcher but Geoff Cameron is wise to the potential trouble and clears.
74'
Odemwingie's done the hard part, racing in on goal, but then sidefoots it at Mannone.
73'
Johnson has been kept quieter this second half but when he gets the ball he still looks dangerous.
Stoke City Substitution
71'
 
Assaidi is replaced by Marko Arnatovic.
71'
Lovely forward run from Larsson, picking the ball up in his own half, and shooting across Begovic from the edge of the box, but the keeper makes the save.
68'
Some nice football being played here by Sunderland - nice ball from Colback over to Johnson on the right, who taps it back to the on-running Celustka, but he can't get the cross in.
Sunderland Substitution
67'
 
And Altidore is next to leave the pitch, replaced by Steven Fletcher.
Stoke City Substitution
65'
 
And that's Peter Crouch's last contribution to the match. Jonathan Walters replaces him.
64'
Borini's on the ground holding his head, and Crouch attempts to drag him to his feet. Not helpful or appreciated.
63'
A sneaky ball in from Colback, trying to release Alonso down the left, but he can't quite get there.
58'
Beautiful work from Borini, holding off the defenders, and playing in Adam Johnson on the right side of the box, but his shot slips wide of the far post.
56'
Altidore has a golden chance, closing in on goal, but this is a man with a dreadful lack of confidence, and he strikes against Begovic's legs.
55'
Larsson strikes it right into the wall.
55'
After all those shenanigans, it's a free-kick to Sunderland outside the box, on the left.
53'
 
Steven N'Zonzi is off, for a second yellow card, fouling Jozy Altidore, who was racing through on goal. It looked a rather gentle touch on his shoulder, but also a needless one.
52'
Stoke are continuing to press, and are looking the more likely to score at the moment. The Sunderland fans are making their unease known.
51'
Another looping ball in from Charlie Adam on the left, but Mannone claims this one. There seems to be a strong breeze across the pitch now.
50'
 
A booking for Wilson, another one who tries to deal with Altidore by dragging him down.
49'
Unusual free-kick routine from Sunderland - hit square by Larsson to Adam Johnson, who loops it over the heads of all the bodies in the box, and into the gloves of Begovic.
47'
A ball in from Assaidi on the left and Mannone can't get a finger to it. Alonso's at the far post, and in the right place to deflect it out.
47'
Stoke have taken up where they left off, pushing forward and putting pressure on the Sunderland back line.
46'
 
Phil Bardsley is replaced by Ondrej Celustka - the full-back apparently has a back problem.
46'
As we get the second half under way, another stat for you: Sunderland have won the last three matches in a row in which they led by a single goal at half-time (two at home, one away).
Sunderland Substitution
45'+1
Half-time.
45'+1
Pieters cuts in from the left, and fires in a low ball, rather unselfishly, to Peter Crouch, who can't connect properly under the challenge from the defender. Goal kick.
45'+1
One minute added on.
45'
 
Yellow card for Bardsley this time, taking out the ankles of N'Zonzi.
44'
There shouldn't be too much additional time here.
42'
That Johnson goal, which remains the difference between the teams, means Stoke fail to keep a clean sheet for the sixth Premier League match in a row.
41'
 
Adam picks up a booking - he fell to the ground after he and Ki went for the same bobbling ball, but Sunderland won the free-kick.
40'
Stoke are looking much better as we move towards half-time.
39'
Another great save from Mannone. Shawcross tries a diving header, and the keeper's reactions are swift.
38'
Crouch is trying to hold the ball up in the box but can't seem to turn or find a team-mate.
37'
Dreadful header from Geoff Cameron - off the top of his head and over the bar.
36'
Panic in the box - the Sunderland defence don't seem to know what's going on, and then Assaidi claims a handball against Bardsley. No dice, though - it's bounced up against his chest.
35'
Stoke on the counter-attack.
34'
Stoke clear the resultant free-kick.
33'
 
N'Zonzi picks up a booking for hauling Altidore to the ground.
32'
Assaidi has another go from the left, but his ball in is just too inaccurate, over Crouch's head and out of play past the far post.
31'
Mannone thinks he's fouled by Peter Crouch. He comes out to collect a cross, but he actually runs into John O'Shea, which means he drops the ball, but he reclaims.
31'
Assaidi is working hard down the left.
30'
Lovely ball from Colback to Larsson, who plays Johnson in once more. He tries to do a bit too much, though, and ends up fouling Erik Pieters.
28'
The Sunderland defence are happily knocking the ball around, as the Stoke forwards make fruitless attempts to run them down. Mark Hughes is shouting with rage.
27'
Looping shot from Alonso on the left wing, who's somewhat optimistic there.
24'
Rather less good work from Colback, who pelts it past Alonso, who's in acres of space on the left, and into touch.
24'
Great work from Bardsley, playing himself out of trouble and launching another Sunderland attack.
23'
Charlie Adam decides he might as well have a go from long-range, shooting across the goal and wide of Mannone's far post.
21'
Stoke are looking to get back in this now, being patient and trying to build something, but they simply can't get in that final third at the moment.
20'
Colback, Altidore and Borini are showing some fight in the middle, battling for possession.
19'
Adam Johnson has now got five goals in his last three Premier League matches - and that's after scoring just one in his first 18 this season.
18'
The crowd are warmed up by that goal.
17'
 
And it had to be Adam Johnson, didn't it? Begovic can't hold the shot from Borini, and Johnson sneaks in to scuff the shot in at an angle.
15'
Stoke trying to calm it down a bit by dragging a few passes together.
14'
Another chance for Bardsley. Good cross in from Alonso, and the full-back again has a chance to show off his volleying technique. This one's a bit closer, but still not quite there.
13'
End-to-end stuff at the moment.
12'
There's Johnson again, getting in a cross from the right to Larsson, who shoots over the bar.
10'
Free-kick to Sunderland this time as Adam fouls Larsson. It's Johnson who gets the cross in, but Bardsley doesn't get his shot on target.
8'
Free-kick to Stoke as O'Shea brings Crouch down near the halfway line. Mannone, who's had a quiet start, is awake, though, and claims a cross from Assaidi that takes a deflection from Ki.
7'
Borini surges forward from the middle, and plays Larsson in, who shoots right at Begovic from 20 yards. The keeper doesn't manage to hold it first time but fortunately he and his defenders are alert.
6'
Stoke are taking a few chances here, passing the ball around in the middle, inviting Sunderland to take it back off them.
5'
Johnson plays a ball square into the box, but Glenn Whelan is alert.
4'
Johnson's involved in everything so far.
3'
Free-kick to Sunderland, who continue to press forward down the left.
2'
Adam Johnson surges forward on the right for Sunderland's first attack of the evening, looking to reach Marcos Alonso on the other flank. Good idea, but his team-mate was never going to get that.
1'
Here we go then. Stoke kick off.
19:42
And further to that weather speculation, there are plenty of long-sleeved shirts and woolly gloves out there too...
19:40
The teams make their way out. It looks rather chilly out there, with the subs quickly settling in to the bench and wrapping their sizeable quilted jackets around them.
19:35
Stoke fans are looking forward to seeing Peter Odemwingie in action tonight after signing for the club yesterday.
19:25
The word is that Lee Cattermole is out due to a "knock", but no information yet about what that might be.
19:20
Our referee this evening is Robert Madley, in his fifth Premier League appointment. In his four matches so far he's dealt out three red cards and given a penalty. Coincidentally that penalty was Stoke's equaliser against Swansea, converted by Charlie Adam in stoppage time back in November.
19:10
Several changes for both sides after their weekend Cup matches - nine changes to the Sunderland starting line-up, with just Jozy Altidore and Sebastian Larsson retaining their places; and four for Stoke.
19:02
TEAMS: Sunderland: Mannone, Bardsley, Alonso, Ki, Brown, O'Shea (C), Johnson, Colback, Larsson, Altidore, Borini. Subs: Gardner, Fletcher, Wickham, Celustka, Giaccherini, Vergini, Ustari. /// Stoke: Begovic, Cameron, Shawcross (C), Wilson, Pieters, Odemwingie, Nzonzi, Adam, Whelan, Assaidi, Crouch. Subs: Sorensen, Muniesa, Palacios, Arnautovic, Walters, Guidetti, Ireland.
19:00
Good evening and welcome to our LIVE coverage of the bottom-of-the-table clash between Sunderland and Stoke at the Stadium of Light. The hosts are second from bottom; Stoke sit precariously two places above the relegation zone.
