Video: On This Day, 30 Years Ago...

It's thirty years to the day since a memorable game at Roker Park and we have the highlights.

Thirty years ago today, Clive Walker starred as Sunderland beat Ron Atkinson's Manchester United 3-2 at Roker Park.

The visitors had actually taken a 2-0 lead after only 15 minutes thanks to goals from Bryan Robson and Mark Hughes but all that did was spark Walker into action as he proceeded to steal the show.

Sunderland: Turner, Venison, Daniel, Bennett, Chisholm, Berry, Hodgson, Gayle, West, Cummins, Walker.

Man Utd: Bailey, Gidman, Duxbury, Moses, McQueen, Garton, Robson, Strachan, Hughes, Whiteside, Olsen (Muhren).
