The Black Cats have reached the play-offs in three of the past four seasons but are yet to seal their return to the Championship, losing in the final in 2018/19 and the semi-finals in 2020/21. Sheffield Wednesday, meanwhile, were relegated from the Championship last season and will hope for an immediate return. The Owls go into this tie as the higher-ranked side, finishing fourth in the League One table, one point clear of fifth-placed Sunderland.

Sunderland team news

Aiden McGeady returned to the bench against Morecambe last weekend and will be hoping to play a part on Friday, be it as a substitute or from the start. However, Sunderland remain without long-term absentee Jordan Willis, Dennis Cirkin and Union Berlin loanee Leon Dajaku.

Sheffield Wednesday team news

Sheffield Wednesday were boosted by the return of Josh Windass in the build up to the final games of the season and he will be looking to have impact from the bench once again after assisting in the Owls’ 4-1 win over Portsmouth last weekend.

However, there are currently doubts surrounding the fitness of Barry Bannan who came off in the win over Portsmouth with suspected cramp. Darren Moore will definitely be without Dennis Adeniran, while Harlee Dean could be in contention to return from injury.
