London - Struggling Sunderland capitalised on the early sending-off of Brede Hangeland to beat Fulham 3-1 on Sunday, earning only their second English Premier League win of the season.

Steven Fletcher, Carlos Cuellar and Stephane Sessegnon all scored in the second half for the visitors while Fulham were down to 10 men, with Hangeland given a straight red card for a reckless 30th-minute tackle.

Substitute Mladen Petric had equalised in the 62nd minute for the mid-table home side but they couldn't hang on at Craven Cottage, with a bad day made worse by game-ending injuries to Sweden winger Alex Kacaniklic and Costa Rica playmaker Bryan Ruiz either side of half-time.

The victory lifted Sunderland three points clear of the bottom three, with Fletcher grabbing his sixth goal of the season.
