Sunderland boss Poyet: Beating Newcastle? Great, incredible

Sunderland boss Gus Poyet was thrilled with the manner of their late, late derby win at Newcastle United.

Johnson's intervention came as Newcastle, looking to avoid a fourth derby defeat on the trot for the first time in their history, were making a final big push in a fiercely-fought contest.

Poyet said: "It's great, it's incredible. When you are on the right side, the good side, you are going to remember it all your life, so it's a special moment for us, a special moment for the club.

"Records, continuing to win games, they are always there for someone to break. We were able to continue this winning run against Newcastle, which is great for us, without forgetting that the three points are the main thing.

"But it makes it a very special Christmas for us."
