SUNDERLAND, England (AP) Fabio Borini scored a 90th minute equalizer to earn Sunderland a 2-2 draw with Crystal Palace that lifted his team out of the Premier League relegation zone on Tuesday.

The substitute scored from a seemingly impossible angle to rescue a point for Sam Allardyce's side. Dame N'Doye had given the hosts a first-half lead with a deflected that shot wrong-footed goalkeeper Wayne Hennessey.

Conor Wickham scored both of Palace's goals after the break with two fine finishes against his former club.

Sunderland, which is still without a clean sheet in 14 matches, climb out of the relegation zone on goal difference, swapping places with Norwich.

Palace, which now hasn't won in 11 Premier League games, remains in 14th place, nine points above the drop zone.
