Sheffield Wednesday were the only team with a better League One home record than Sunderland in 2021/22. Darren Moore’s side only lost two league games at Hillsborough all season.
The terms ‘well poised’ and ‘finely balanced’ will be thrown around liberally in the build-up to the huge encounter this evening and it’s hard to see a firm favourite. Expect a cracking evening of football with the winner to book their place against Wycombe in the final at Wembley.

Our prediction: Sheffield Wednesday v Sunderland
Sunderland will be far happier with their performance than Wednesday, but the visitors may – ironically – be more pleased with the result given the display.
The Black Cats dominated for 70 minutes before a late flurry from the visitors, meaning there’s a general feeling that Sunderland somewhat let them off the hook. They should be heading into this one with a greater lead.
Expect a much-improved Sheffield Wednesday on Monday night, but don’t underestimate Sunderland who, under Alex Neil, are undefeated in 14 games and have only conceded two goals in a game once during that streak.
