SUNDERLAND, England(AP) Defender Leighton Baines converted a second-half penalty to give Everton a 1-1 draw at Sunderland in the Premier League on Monday.

Sunderland substitute Jack Colback opened the scoring with his first goal for the club in the 26th minute, five minutes after the midfielder came on to replace injured defender Titus Bramble.

Sunderland started with the same side that beat Queens Park Rangers on Wednesday but was forced into a change when Bramble limped off.

The visitors, without the injured Seamus Coleman and Marouane Fellaini, were dominant from the start but failed to convert their chances before falling behind.

But after Lee Cattermole gave away a penalty for a foul on Leon Osman, Baines scored from the spot to secure the draw.
