We must control emotions - Allardyce

Sunderland manager Sam Allardyce believes that "keeping eleven men on the field" could be the key to winning Sunday's Tyne-Wear derby against Newcastle

Both sides have the added pressure of going into the game in the bottom three of the Premier League table but Newcastle boss Steve McClaren says that he will not treat Sunday's lunch-time encounter any differently from any other match.

Allardyce meanwhile, will become the first man to have managed both Sunderland and Newcastle in a derby,
