Fulham 1-3 Sunderland: Black Cats come from behind to see past the Cottagers in the FA Cup fourth round

Sunderland scored three second-half goals in dramatic fashion, coming from behind against Fulham in the FA Cup fourth round at Craven Cottage, reports BBC Sport.

The home side took a surprise lead through striker Hugo Rodallega inside of half an hour. The former Wigan man saw his effort go in via the crossbar to put Fulham ahead up to the break.

In the second-half, Sunderland were handed a lifeline when Fulham goalkeeper Marcus Bettinelli scored an own goal, after failing to correctly deal with a Patrick Van Aanholt cross into the middle. His error levelled the game, and just over 10 minutes later Ricardo Alvarez put the away side ahead.

Jordi Gomez wrapped up the win in injury time, scoring from the spot, after Nikolay Bodurov fouled Danny Graham in the area. It was nevertheless a deserved win for a dominant Sunderland side, who now face Bradford later this month.
