Scoring the winning goal in a derby is hardly a bad thing – not to mention when you have a new manager watching from the touchline.
Sunderland were in dire need of a win, and they duly provided Gus Poyet with one after Borini netted a late goal against bitter rivals Newcastle.
The former Liverpool player may not have been fan favourite before, but he certainly is one after that.
As previous match winners will tell you, a goal in the derby sends you into the record books!
