So Burnley's wait for a first away win of the Premier League season continues. 

That's all from me for now, but you can follow all the reaction to Saturday's games, over here.

Until the next time!

It was frantic in the closing stages. Sunderland and Burnley both had - and missed - huge chances to claim all three points. 

Instead it's a draw, which won't help Sunderland at all. Crystal Palace beating Watford means they are now seven points adrift of safety. 

And it could get worse if Swansea beat Bournemouth later.

FULL-TIME

Sunderland 0-0 Burnley

Sunderland 0-0 Burnley

The corner is wasted. Burnley have a throw in deep in their own half. David Moyes has his hands in his pockets, time is nearly up.

GREAT SAVE!

Sunderland 0-0 Burnley

Tom Heaton to the rescue for Burnley now! 

Fabio Borini blasts one from the edge of the box but Heaton is equal to it and he hammers it away.

Sunderland 0-0 Burnley

Huge punch from Jordan Pickford to clear the lines. He booms the ball up the park...

THREE minutes added on. 

Jason Denayer gets a last-ditch block to deny Scott Arfield. Corner Burnley...

Sunderland 0-0 Burnley

Burnley building all the pressure now. It wasn't supposed to be like this for David Moyes' men. 

Matt Lowton drifts a cross across the Sunderland box... No danger. Just a few minutes of normal time left.

GREAT SAVE!

Sunderland 0-0 Burnley

Jason Denayer with a terrible mistake - his dallying and dithering on the ball gives it straight to Sam Vokes, who can power through on goal - Denayer was last man.

Luckily for Sunderland it's Jordan Pickford to the rescue - a massive right hand claws Vokes' shot away from the line.

CLOSE!

Sunderland 0-0 Burnley

Decent chance for Sam Vokes but the Burnley man can only nod Robbie Brady's free-kick wide of the Sunderland net.

Frustration growing for the home side...

YELLOW CARD

Sunderland 0-0 Burnley

Fabio Borini goes in the book - the ref indicates for a number of fouls building up. This latest one was a shove in Stephen Ward's back as the Burnley man looked to shepherd the ball out. 

CLOSE!

Sunderland 0-0 Burnley

Adnan Januzaj smashes one against Ben Mee in the box. It cannons off the Burnley defender and away. Huge last 10 minutes coming up. 

SUBSTITUTION

Sunderland 0-0 Burnley

The home fans reckon this man could change things. There's a huge cheer as Wahbi Khazri comes on for Sunderland, Seb Larsson making way.

Sunderland 0-0 Burnley

A big last 15 minutes? 

Bryan Oviedo kills any growing momentum with a careless pass. Sloppy, it's out for a Burnley throw when the away side were all pinned back behind the ball.

SUBSTITUTION

Sunderland 0-0 Burnley

Frustrations running away now. Billy Jones had his studs showing and is probably lucky not to get a yellow. Still the ref needs to have an extended word to settle the Sunderland man down. 

Two chances. Off comes George Boyd and on comes Robbie Brady, for Burnley. 

Sunderland's Darron Gibson comes off for Didier N'Dong in midfield.

Sunderland 0-0 Burnley

Sunderland last won at home in the league in December - a 1-0 victory over Watford. They've failed to win in five home league matches since then. 

Can they find something from these final 20 minutes? They should be ahead already.

CLOSE!

Sunderland 0-0 Burnley

Jermain Defoe bursts forward and creates havoc in the Burnley backline. The away side recover, but the clearance pops out to Adnan Januzaj, who darts one just inches wide of the Burnley left-stick and Tom Heaton's sprawling arms.

So, so close again...

SUBSTITUTION

Sunderland 0-0 Burnley

In the fallout from all that, a change in the Burnley forward line; Ashley Barnes, who's been in the wars today, comes off, replaced by Sam Vokes.

CLOSE!

Sunderland 0-0 Burnley

What a huge chance for Sunderland again. Another massive, massive miss. 

Billy Jones comes steaming in at the back stick to reach Seb Larsson's fantastic cross, he's travelling at such speed all he needs to do is make clean contact on the head, steer it home... 

But four yards out, somehow, he nods it wide. A glorious chance, wasted.

Sunderland 0-0 Burnley

Superb noise from the Burnley fans by the way. But their team don't look much like getting the goal that could set up a first away win this season.

YELLOW CARD

Sunderland 0-0 Burnley

Darren Gibson gets his name in the book for a late, reaching challenge on Ashley Barnes. Caught him with studs on ankle, a real painful one for the Burnley striker.

Sunderland 0-0 Burnley

The heavens have opened, the rain is pouring, and what looked a few moments ago like a stirring Sunderland charge is now looking rather dampened. 

We're slipping back into the first-half pattern; neither side able to cause any real damage. 

Sunderland 0-0 Burnley

Much, much better from Sunderland. They were meek before the break. This is what they needed to do. 

Burnley can breathe as Matt Lowton launches in a long throw, but Sunderland are giving as good as they've been getting now.

CLOSE!

Sunderland 0-0 Burnley

Huge, huge chances for the home side.

Jermain Defoe clips a ball to the back stick for Adnan Januzaj, whose volley is straight at Tom Heaton and is parried clear. 

But only to Bryan Oviedo, whose cross into the box is smashed way over the bar by Seb Larsson with the Burnley goal gaping. Had to score.

CHANCE!

Sunderland 0-0 Burnley

Brilliant pass from Bryan Oviedo, he splits the Burnley defence in three with a searching ball forward for Fabio Borini. 

But the Italian dithers and dallies, and eventually just strokes the ball straight at Tom Heaton. Admittedly the angle was tough, but he had to do better there. He was clean through on goal and that finish had no power.

Sunderland 0-0 Burnley

Well this is brighter than how Sunderland started the first half anyway. Jermain Defoe nips in and steals the ball from Jeff Hendrick in the middle, bursts towards goal and is hauled down by the Burnley man. 

From the free-kick. Darren Gibson slices a volley horribly wide. Think Paul Scholes, but the total opposite.

KICK-OFF

Sunderland 0-0 Burnley

And we are back under way. No changes from either side at the break. Come on now. Let's have a few goals.

People's Cup goals analysed by the pros

The first round of the FA People's Cup featured more than 40,000 players and 6,000+ teams playing five-a-side, and we saw drama, excitement, cracking goals (including  these efforts analysed by Dan Walker and Dean Saunders ) and some amazing stories from right across the country.

You can still catch  our highlights programme on iPlayer  and look out for our live text coverage of the semi-finals next weekend from 10am on Saturday and Sunday, 25-26 March.

Sunderland 0-0 Burnley

Actually, make that six yards. I've just seen another replay of that Barnes chance and it really is a bad miss.

Sunderland 0-0 Burnley

It's Burnley who've made all the running. They should be 1-0 up at least - Ashley Barnes prodded the game's best chance just wide from about 12 yards out. 

Sunderland, well they look like a team that's bottom of the Premier League.

HALF-TIME

Sunderland 0-0 Burnley

Dyche

Sunderland 0-0 Burnley

The Sunderland fans appear not to have forgotten about Joey Barton's Newcastle days. 

The Burnley man hits a ball down the line for George Boyd to chase, but there's too much on it.

Sunderland 0-0 Burnley

Tom Heaton's claiming all of these long balls into the box.

TWO minutes added on.

Sunderland 0-0 Burnley

Matt Lowton winds up a long throw into the box as the away side look to crank up the pressure. A goal now could be terminal for Sunderland. 

The red and white shirts scamper back and manage to win a throw for themselves. Adnan Januzaj then darts up the pitch, through no space, and is fouled. Excellent work from the Manchester United loanee.

CLOSE!

Sunderland 0-0 Burnley

Ashley Barnes must score! But his toe-poke towards goal from Scott Arfield's prod-through is carried just wide of the post. Jordan Pickford was rooted to the spot - the whole Sunderland back line was.

FIVE to go until the break. David Moyes' brow is furrowed.

Adnan Januzaj booms a long ball up towards Jermain Defore, but Ben Mee judges brilliantly to flick back to his keeper on the head.

Sunderland 0-0 Burnley

Excellent sliding tackle from Jason Denayer to deny Ashley Barnes, who was gathering pace down the Burnley right. 

Andre Gray then tries to take a difficult low cross into his path but can't control it.

They are nodding off in the Sunderland directors' box.

Sunderland 0-0 Burnley

It could well be the spin of a knock-down, a handy deflection into someone's path, that leads to the opener. If we're to get one that is. Both sides have been poor with their finishing. 

Seb Larsson loops one up for Jermain Defoe to chase - he's had nothing so far - but the ball bounces into Tom Heaton, who gathers.

Sunderland 0-0 Burnley

Jason Denayer is tight on Andre Gray as Burnley look to counter - too tight, it's another foul. There's been quite a few between those two this afternoon already. Certainly one to watch. Gray's having the best of the battle so far. 

George Boyd snatches at a knock-down as the free-kick is pumped up to the edge of the Sunderland box. Wide again. 

CHANCE!

Sunderland 0-0 Burnley

Burnley are slow out as Sunderland feign a short corner - instead it's out to Darren Gibson on the edge of the box, but the midfielder's strike is again lacking quality. Power, but no accuracy. Comfortably over, from a decent opening.
