SUNDERLAND have been lingering in the third tier of English football for the past four seasons.
And the Black Cats have the chance to bounce back if they can beat Wycombe in the League One play-off final.
The Mackems were almost taken the full distance by Sheffield Wednesday in their semi-final.
But Patrick Roberts’ well-placed stoppage time finish fired Sunderland to a dramatic semi-final victory.
Meanwhile Wycombe’s ride to Wembley was a little smoother as they led MK Dons for the entire tie.
However, the Chairboys needed to show their resilience as Dons striker Troy Parrotts’ goal in the second leg, made it a nervy ending to the contest.
