Sunderland 2-2 Southampton: Gus Poyet praises Adam Johnson form

Sunderland boss Gus Poyet says Adam Johnson's return to top form makes him the Black Cats' "signing of the January transfer window" after his goal salvaged a 2-2 draw against Southampton at the Stadium of Light.

The home side looked on course for defeat after Jay Rodriguez and Dejan Lovren netted first-half goals for the Saints. But goals either side of half-time from Fabio Borini and Johnson were enough to rescue a point.

Poyet's team are now undefeated in four games in all competitions.
