Sunderland are celebrating a much needed three points after beating Leicester City 2-1 at the Stadium of Light.
All of the action was saved up for the second half after a 64th minute own goal by Robert Huth.
The Foxes were barely over the embarrassment when Jermain Defoe hit the back of the net with his eighth goal of the season for the Black Cats.
Leicester fought back by pulling a late goal from substitute Shinji Okazaki after a Demarai Gray cross.
But six minutes of extra time wasn't enough to topple Sunderland who now move up to 18th place, one point from safety.

Former Middlesbrough and manager and player Gareth Southgate has been confirmed as England's new manager.
The 46-year-old signed a four-year deal on Wednesday after his nomination as Sam Allardyce's successor was nodded through during an FA board meeting at St George's Park.
Southgate became interim manager in September, stepping up from his role as under-21 boss, winning two and drawing two of his four games in charge and was the only candidate interviewed for the job.
Southgate signed as a player for Middlesbrough in 2001, and was appointed captain for the 2002-2003 season and helped them to win the League Cup in 2004.
He was handed his first managerial role at Middlesbrough in June 2006 after Steve McClaren had left to manage England.
