Sunderland vs Sheffield Wednesday LIVE
Hello and welcome to our live blog coverage of Sunderland vs Sheffield Wednesday from the Stadium of Light.
The play-offs are here once more and the Black Cats will be hoping this is the year they can finally secure promotion back to the Championship. Alex Neil has his side in good form heading into this two-legged tie, but the Owls will prove a tough test for the Wearsiders.
Sunderland have an injury doubt over Nathan Broadhead, while key Wednesday midfielder Barry Bannan could miss out for the visitors. A repeat of the stunning league victory would do Sunderland very nicely ahead of the second leg at Hillsborough on Monday.
As always, James Hunter is on hand to guide you through the action as it hapens.
