Sunderland claim win at Palace

Steven Fletcher scored twice as Sunderland beat Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park to lift themselves out of the Premier League's relegation zone.
Fletcher gave the Black Cats the lead when he headed home a cross, but Palace drew level when Wes Brown turned the ball into his own net from close range.
Jordi Gomez restored the visitors' lead with a low shot before Palace captain Mile Jedinak was sent off after being shown a second yellow card.
Fletcher then stroked home late on.
The injury-time strike capped a battling performance by Sunderland, who showed real resolve to bounce back from being beaten 8-0 by Southampton in their previous away match.
It also ended their unwelcome record of not having won on a Monday in 20 previous attempts.
