Sheffield Wednesday vs Sunderland Live Stream: How to Watch, Team News, Head to Head, Odds, Prediction and Everything You Need to Know, The English Football Leagues (EFL) seasons are over and arguably some of the most exciting parts of the season have arrived thanks to the playoffs.
Hello and welcome to today’s live blog coverage of Sheffield Wednesday vs Sunderland at Hillsborough. A huge 90 minutes await Alex Neil and the Black Cats as they look to reach the League One play-off final.
The play-offs always bring crazy drama, and with Wycombe beating MK Dons in the other League One play-off, Sunderland and Wednesday know who their opponents at Wembley will be.
Both the Black Cats and the Owls are sleeping giants in the world of English football and no doubt many will think its crazy that they are battling all the way down in League One.
The Wearsiders have a goal advantage, of course, after Ross Stewart’s strike separated the sides in Friday’s first leg at the Stadium of Light. A Sunderland win or a draw would see them face Wycombe Wanderers in the final at Wembley on May 21.
It won’t be easy, with the Owls strong at their home ground, as Sunderland found out in their 3-0 league defeat in South Yorkshire earlier this season. But Neil and Co will be confident of getting the job done tonight.
It could go to extra-time and penalties if it’s all-square on the night, so get ready for what could be an eventful match. James Hunter is at the ground today to bring you all the latest as it happens.
