London: West Bromwich Albion took advantage of a howler from Sunderland goalkeeper Simon Mignolet to move up to third place in the Premier League with a 4-2 win at the Stadium of Light on Saturday.

Steve Clarke's side were leading through Zoltan Gera's blistering first half strike when Mignolet allowed the ball to slip from his grasp and Shane Long tapped in to cement Albion's lead.

Craig Gardner got one back for Sunderland in the second half before a penalty from Albion forward Romelu Lukaku.
