Former Celtic boss suffers injury celebrating goal on touchline - Ryan Porteous on scoresheet
The Black Cats kept their top-six hopes alive with a spirited late comeback in the 2-2 draw with Chris Wilder’s side, with Patrick Roberts scoring a stunning leveller in the fifth minute of added time.
That resulted in scenes of joy in the home dugout, but delight turned to pain for former Hibs and Celtic boss Mowbray.
“I think it’s a hamstring injury,” he said. “I never had a hamstring injury in 18 years as a professional because I was never fast enough but when that goal went in I obviously moved a bit too quick. I’m sure it’ll be fine, a bit of treatment. We have a full treatment room but if I can grab a physio I’ll be fine.”
But 60 seconds after that second goal, Luke O’Nien gave Sunderland a lifeline before Roberts’ moment of brilliance deep into stoppage time.
The draw leaves Sunderland in seventh, two points shy of sixth-placed Millwall ahead of their final-day trip to Deepdale.
