NEWCASTLE, England (AP) Sunderland powered to a 3-0 win at fierce rival Newcastle for the second straight season to surge clear of Premier League's relegation zone and spark anger among disillusioned home fans on Saturday.

Sunderland was 2-0 ahead after just 23 minutes when Fabio Borini's penalty - following Vurnon Anita's foul on Phil Bardsley - was added to by Adam Johnson's sixth goal in his last four league games.

Jack Colback ensured there would be no comeback by Newcastle when he buried a finish in the 80th minute after good work by Borini, clinching a third straight derby win for Sunderland.

Two Newcastle fans ran onto the pitch after Colback's goal and large sections turned their ire on owner Mike Ashley as the atmosphere turned unpleasant inside St. James' Park late on.
