Sunderland vs Tranmere - CUP FINAL - Team Sheet, Result and Reviews

EFL Papa John's Trophy Final | Wembley Stadium | Kick off 3pm

The team sheets:

Sunderland AFC starting XI: Burge, Power, Flanagan, O'Nien, McFadzean, Scowen, Leadbitter, Maguire, Gooch, McGeady, Wyke
SAFC substitutes: Matthews, McLaughlin, Kimpioka, Diamond, Neil, Stewart, Younger

Is Sunderland going to break the Wembley hoodoo?
SAFC hasn't won a final at Wembley since 1973.
We've been back 8 times since then!

Lee Johnson will want to win this game for the next generation of Sunderland supporters.
Will Kyril Louis-Dreyfus enjoy success as Sunderland AFC owner at the first attempt?
We shall soon see!

We are totally controlling the midfield so far with the lads having all the possession.
I think they are just playing a bit cagey trying to figure each other out.

Sunderland were lucky but Budgie Burge managed to save that.
He's managed to fist a few away so far as well.
Hope his fisting technique continues to prove good :mrgreen:

It's been a canny game so far but we are letting Tranmere have a few chances.
I still think we can win this game in the 90 minutes.
