Daring Sunderland fans have left a giant banner mocking NUFC supporters hanging from the Tyne Bridge in Newcastle.

The banner, which reads "6 in a row doon you go FTM" (sic) appeared overnight on the landmark bridge into the city centre.

The move makes it a hat trick of pranks by Sunderland fans: last weekend saw SAFC supporters flying a plane over St James's Park carrying a banner mocking Newcastle as NUFC took on Spurs in their last game of the season, winning 5-1.

A video was posted on YouTube of Boycie from Only Fools and Horses with a message for NUFC fans from "the Seaburn lads".

It comes after Sunderland survived the drop at the expense of Newcastle, with the latter now due to spend next season in the Championship.

Sunderland fans have also enjoyed a string of wins over Newcastle in Tyne-Wear derbies in recent years, clocking up six wins in a row - thought the last match between the two teams ended in a draw.
